The following article originally appeared on the American Conservative website.
In it, the author argues that the U.S. government should build custom-made window coverings in a similar way to the American-made airplane door covers used by airline pilots.
According to the article, the American flag is a symbol of freedom, while window covers can be used to “display your patriotism” or “spread your message.”
Window covers are an inexpensive alternative to airplane door coverings, but the article suggests that they may not be appropriate for everyday use.
The author, Paul Kengor, says that Americans “need to be able to display the American spirit, and if you want to wear the American way, you need to wear window covering.”
He also suggests that window coverINGS be made of “fiberglass” rather than polyester, and that they should be made with a light weight material such as “glass.”
Kengo’s article, which was published in the American Heritage Dictionary of American Biography, is part of the “American Heritage Dictionary” series.
The article has not been reviewed by the American Dictionary of Biography.
