Our friend Ben is really vexed. And, in honor of the upcoming Fourth of July holiday, I’d like to share the source of my vexation with all of you: I just discovered that apparently the correct term for a person who studies flags and their history is a vexillologist. Mind you, that might be okay if the term referred to a person who studied particularly irritating people. Such as, say, those who refer to themselves as vexillologists instead of flag historians.
