How would you interpret this phrase “they’ve run it in Stars and Stripes”? Of all things unexpected, this is the largest. Harrison Shepherd fires the shot heard ’round the world. That quote has gone everywhere, even overseas to the armed services, they’ve run it in Stars and Stripes. Here’s what one spineless fellow thinks back home, and you can bet Harrison Shepherd did not serve active duty: “Our leader is an empty sack, let’s knock him over, put some horns on a stick and follow that. Most of us never choose to believe in our country, we just come up short on better ideass.” How would you interpret this phrase “they’ve run it in Stars and Stripes”? Thanks. And this excerpt is taken from The Lacuna by Kingsolver.I think “Stars and Stripes” here refers to a newspaper rather than the the Flag of the United States, right?
