Flag idea is tacky!

What a tasteless idea to build a 40-story flagpole on the edge of Biscayne Bay in downtown Miami. I was trying to think what that reminded me of and then remembered — the large gaudy public monuments built by Saddam Hussein that were knocked down during the U.S. invasion of Baghdad. We do not need such a monstrosity here in Miami.
