Leviathan’s A Green-Eyed Monster

John Windsor writes me, “Over here at Fascism Watch” — too good! — “we’ve just come across another little gem. It seems the Old Glory crowd at city hall doesn’t like rival flags being flown.” Yep, the nationalists in “Atlantic Beach, northeast Florida” have ordered the “owners of Culhane’s Irish Pub” there to remove the Irish flag they’ve flown for eight years “because of a local rule banning the commercial display of non-U.S. flags.” And this as the bar’s most profitable day of sales, St. Paddy’s, impends.

Every time I figure the State has plumbed the depths of absurdity, pettiness and envy, it proves me wrong.
