Flag day afternoon

I'll bet you didn't know that it is illegal to display foreign flags in Colorado public schools. Well, it is, and a grade 7 social studies teacher just found out. The hard way:
A Jefferson County geography teacher was placed on paid administrative on the second day of school for hanging several flags from other countries in his classroom.

Eric Hamlin said the flags were part of a world geography lesson plan at Carmody Middle School and refused to take them down. The school's principal escorted Hamlin out of class Wednesday morning after he refused to remove the flags of China and Mexico.

Those nations aren't important anyway. In fact, they just revolve around USA much in the same way that the sun just revolves around the earth.
