Idiots of the Week

A worker in the Richmond City Hall who wanted to hang a flag in his office was told to take it down after co-workers complained that it was a de-facto endorsement of war that offended them, reports the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Gary Burton and a friend hung a 5-foot by 8-foot American flag in their office, only to be told to take it down eight hours later. Three co-workers in the Bureau of Permits and Inspections complained about the flag throughout the day.

"The gist of [their complaints] is the flag is an attempt to make a political statement in support of the war. And they were opposed to the war," said Claude Cooper, the city's building commissioner.
