COVID-19 Update: June 14, 2021

Dear Bereans,

This is the update for Monday, June 14, 2021.   Happy Flag Day everyone.

Here’s a random question for you—perhaps one you’ve worried about before…. It seems likely that eventually the United States will add a 51st state, perhaps the District of Columbia, perhaps one of our interesting territories.  It is interesting to think about how 51 stars will be arranged in the blue field of our flag then.  Naturally there are websites considering the question, for example.  I am doing a Zoom American Geography class with two grandchildren, and we worked on this problem a bit, coming up with two nice designs, neither of which is included in the above website.  If you come up with something interesting, you are invited to send it to me—I will share the grandkids ideas in return.
