Mara Gay, member of The New York Times’ editorial board and MSNBC contributor, apparently did not have a good Memorial Day weekend. On a day when Americans are supposed to take time to reflect and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of this nation, Gay found herself confronted with a “disturbing” sight. Was it an image of gravestones at Arlington Cemetery, or wreaths being laid by grieving family members? No. Gay was disturbed by the sight of the American flag itself.
