On a grey planet of a little no named star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some dusty corner of a universe; lived a screaming eight year old boy. He believed in America and wove an American Flag with Gusto. The boy wore a purple viking t-shirt, a present from his grandfather.
The eight year old jumped up and down in patriotic splendor during the annual Boulder County Colorado Fair kick off parade.
The Daily Camera photographer saw the red-haired kid, (heck who could miss him, he seemed so animated) and took the kids photograph to be placed on the front of the paper the next day.
