New York Times says its ok to fly the flag again
We were just waiting for the "all clear" from the New York Times:
WASHINGTON is suddenly hip again, infused with the heady double-barreled combination of a new crowd of idealistic young political worker bees, who actually believe they can change the world, and the arrival of America's first black president. It's even cool to wave the Stars and Stripes. And in the honeymoon months of the Barack Obama presidency, before the country's marriage to its new president undergoes the usual souring, a trip to the nation's capital is just the ticket. Why, it would almost be unpatriotic not to visit.
Castle Argghhh! 's point out that some of us anyway have been flying the flag regardless of who has been in the oval office.
I am waiting for the inevitable "Dissent in time of war is dangerous" article from the Times as well as "Leaks from top secret government agencies are bad."
