An AP photo that appeared in area newspapers at the end of July has at least one Red Flannel fan laughing. Keith Carpenter, of Muskegon, sent the photo to the Post, which featured House Speaker John Boehner leaving the House Chamber on Capitol Hill after the debt legislation was passed. But that’s not what caught Keith’s eye. It was the curtains in the background.
He wrote: “The local young matrons who are embarrassed by, and would try to cover up and deny the proud heritage of Cedar Springs will be aghast when they become aware of what is proudly hanging in the august House Chamber in our national Capitol! Finally, it can be let out—giant Red Flannel underwear trimmed in gold piping, truly befitting our legislators, who are only intent on covering their behinds!”
He’s right—they do look like Red Flannel long johns trimmed in gold! Write us and tell us what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org.
