My apologies for being a day late with the hook for this post.
Yesterday, in the United States, was Flag Day, a holiday designed to honor Old Glory and the Stars and Stripes.
In that vein, I offer you this story from last year of a member of the French Parliament offering an amendment that would prohibit the flying of foreign flags in public places. That was probably not the best time for the proposed ban by MP Guy Teissier as the French city of Annecy was bidding to win the right to host the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Pyeongchang, South Korea, will host those Games.
So my follow-up question is this: What is more worthy of a forehead-slap…
a) Living in a country where the legislature debates prohibiting foreign flags (which is almost as absurd as taxing all foreigners living abroad)
