Yellow ribbons are disappearing
Have you noticed? The once-ubiquitous magnetic yellow ribbons displayed proudly on SUVs and pickups are becoming a rarity. Even here in mostly liberal Corvallis, where we used to see the ribbons on every third vehicle, we're beginning to see only outlines where the ribbons used to be.
What does this mean? Are people no longer "supporting our troops"? Are they no longer supporting the war? Are they no longer supporting the president?
Or are they just embarrassed to be aligned with one of the worst disasters in U.S. history?
