The Proper Way to Hang the Confederate Flag
My friends at the Brogan Museum in Tallahassee have found themselves in what some would call hot water over a piece on display titled "The Proper Way to Hang the Confederate Flag." (In fact, I think they are findingt the water comfortably warm, perhaps even tepid.) A local group of Confederates demanded that it be removed, complaining that it was disrespectful to the flag. (Florida has a law against embarrassing the Confederate flag.) The New York Times report is here.
