Communists running Wrentham, Mass., public housing were struck a blow Thursday when the state overruled a decision to ban the U.S. flag.
Residents of Garden Lane Apartments were told they got a little too patriotic July 4th and a letter taped to each door July 11 told them the U.S. flag could only be displayed indoors.
The Wrentham Times has a series of articles explaining the series of events.
State Rep. Dan Winslow began looking into it and called Gov. Deval Patrick, who quickly moved to strike down the ban.
“We were not aware of this decision when it was made, and it was a mistake that is being corrected immediately,” the governor said.
Wilson was a little more fired up.
“I am outraged that tax dollars are paying the salary of state employees who do not instantly recognize the idiocy of such a decision. They should be invited to find jobs in the private sector and unemployed veterans hired in their place,” he said.
Good idea, but I bet dollars to almost free doughnuts that that won’t happen.
