Independence Day topics, events and your experiences

Posted at 8:43 AM on July 3, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

The 4th of July holiday presents some interesting topics, events - and as always - a chance to share your experiences with MPR.

On the topics front, Bob Collins of News Cut is in a Flag daze. He writes,

"People have their heart in the right place when they make a statement about how much they love the American flag when they turn it into apparel, or napkins, or T-shirts. They just don't know they're doing the opposite."
You can share examples of flag misuse, or discuss respecting the flag.

In the realm of events A Prairie Home Companion celebrates its 35th Anniversary. Naturally, this special show occurs at Lake Wobegon Park in Avon, Minn. Better yet, it is free. Get details via video straight from the host on prairiehome.publicradio.org.

If you can't make it you can still listen. MPR's Euan Kerr shares a little of the backstory in his feature: After 35 years with APHC Keillor looks back and forward.
