It's Baaaaack...


So the UN Flag (liberated last week--probably as a dorm room decoration) has been replaced, for the 4th or 5th time in the last few years. Paid for by a UN Committee, who also apparently donated the flagpole all those years ago.

Larry, does this not convince you that the new generation of UM students are politically on your side?

It has been there 30 years and never stolen, now stolen 5 times this year? What does that tell you?

My source tells me five times over the past three years. But yeah, a BIG increase since 1972 or so when it first went up.

However folks also think it was a student or students who grabbed the US and POW flags last month at the American Legion.

the only thing it proves is that the students are still drunken fools, umass or otherwise.

I heard it just went in for a cleaning so it could hang in all its rightful glory.

Pat Church. She's also in my "hall of shame" for her Town Meeting vote against flying the American flags on 9/11.
