Hearts of Oak

John Bull, posting over in Dr. Rusty's Sandcrawler, has an encouraging post about our English cousins rallying 'round the flag:

They are everywhere. Hanging from office buildings, shops, homes, fluttering from (not very well secured) antenna on cars and trucks. Even painted on people's faces.

It's World Cup time and England at least is looking as confident and patriotic as it always is just below the surface.

He goes on to note the Usual Suspects wetting their pants over such brazen displays but is pleased to report that this seems to have little effect on the majority of the Brits, whose confidence in themselves and their country remains high.

(Okay, I confess that I don't really care about the Cup. But I've been itching for an excuse to post the Cross of St. George myself. This'll do just fine.)

May or may not be bad for your health. I've got it up at my place, and have yet seen no ill effects.
