When I first saw the photos of the flags in an e-mail I received, I couldn't believe it wasn't just a tasteless prank.
I was wrong. The American flag really was turned upside down, and the Mexican flag actually was hoisted on top of our flag, by protestors at a California high school.
Today, it seems that the United States Senate agrees with the illegal immigrant protestors. If the proposed immigration bill does go through, our border troubles are just beginning.
The American flag flying upside down is an international distress symbol. How fittingly symbolic for today's events.
