One of the odd things about readjusting to the east coast (other than the difficulty of buying microbrewed beer in Pennsylvania) is the ubiquity of these odd ribons on the back of people's cars. There seems to be two of them, one yellow, one in red/white/blue, and they say "support the troops." I assume this means "send your kids armor since the administration won't" but since they sometimes appear on cars with "W" stickers they must mean something different.

At any rate, I can't figure out why there are more of these ribons in PA, NY, CT (I went on a trip to CT for new years), then there are in say Nevada (where I was over thanksgiving.

This isn't just a liberal/conservative thing. PA, NY, CT are blue and NV is red. I'm very confused.
