On Assignment: Cincinnati, Ohio-Day Three

"Pride of Patchel Road" by Wes Aldridge

While I was driving through Batavia, a small township on the outskirts of Cincinnati, I saw this image. I thought it was interesting in many ways. During my stay in this city and surrounding areas I have seen multitudes of American flags flying high, but none quite like this one.

Remember the latest presidential election? You know, the one John Kerry lost because he couldn't carry Ohio, among other things? Well that is all I could think about when I saw this scene on a back country road. It really made me sad to know this state crashed a victory for the Democratic Party.

Anyway, this is the "Pride of Patchel Road."
