A Balkans connection..

In Minnesota there has been a proposed law that American flags actually be manufactured in the United States of America, if they are to be sold as American flags. The guy who started this thing is a guy named Tom Rukavina. That is an old and honored Croatian family name....

He is a member of the Democratic Farmer Labor Party

Wikipedia, but it's a good quick 'n' dirty summing up


I cut my teeth on Farmer Labor Party stuff... just so you know...

My Great-grandfather helped organize miners there in the Mesabi Range

a lot of Balkanci wound up there, so did a lot of Swedes and a lot of Irish.
