Firstly the story is sourced and credited to AP not Fox. Secondly what makes it a story is that it violates no city ordinance or law of any type, only the opinion of a few idiots twisting their private homeowners association document or charter.
I could understand if it was a personal University flag or other flag but when ya cant fly the American flag in America then thats just lame. Pretty soon all stripes will have corporate sponsors where the stars are anyway. He might have to get a Corporate Sponsor to just to endorse his flying of it, like they do with all the Bowl games in football now.
