Chattanooga will have plenty of time to change it's flag when it's living in a van down by the river.
Changing the city flag is as useful as rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. Jobless rate in the Chattanooga area up.....again in July, every politician from the local dogcatcher to the President telling us, "we'll just have to tighten or belts a little", and the Mayor wants to spend money on a new city flag. From what I read, it flys on, what, one flag pole in the entire city? The flag stand just outside the Mayors' office? How much money is this going to cost? Another $500,000 for a "feasibility and impact" study, another trip by the mayor and his entourage to a foriegn country to "gain knowledge" of the subject, and then "set-up and production costs" to a flag company? Who owns the flag company? Probably a friend of family member of one of the political cronies that populate city hall like cockroaches in public housing. (By the way that is not a dig at the people who must live in public housing, but at the way our "government" cares for and "serves" the public.) We need a new city flag like a goose needs a laxative.
The proposed new flag looks like it should be flying atop the capitol of a THIRD-WORLD NATION in South America. The current flag is traditional and in good taste, all of which means nothing to politicians. If the mayor likes this rag let him fly from his front porch.
