‘Star-Mangled Banner’: Wait Until You See the Decrepit Flag Flying Over a Harlem School

Given Villaverde’s outrage over the tattered flag hanging high above PS 28 for all to see, you would think the school would have done all it could to replace the eyesore, if not out of respect then for aesthetics. But not so. Even though the school’s principal quickly responded to Villaverde and said “We didn’t mean to be disrespectful” and pledged to fix it, the flag apparently still remains.

“Not only is it not supposed to be up in that condition, but it’s supposed to be disposed of in a respectful way,” he told the Post, which noted the flag is not illuminated at night, which is required for those who do not take the flag down every day.

His repeated calls to the city’s all-purpose hotline, 311, have also yielded no results. And when he contacted the Department of Education, it told him the issue was the local janitor’s problem.

That itself seems to point to a larger problem, however.

If Vets don’t take action, who will?

Certainly not politicians or bureaucrats.

One Response to RANT: Mangled flags

  1. Judy Hopson says:

    I live in Texas. If I see a flag flying in disrepair, I take the time to personally request they remove the flag. I also remind them that they do not have to fly a flag but if they choose to do so, make sure it honors our country. I have called Sen. Schumer’s and Gillibrand’s offices to request they honor the school with a flag that has flown over the Capitol. When I call today, the third day, I hope to get an affirmation that they have knowledge of the problem and helping to solve it.
