Brooklyn Gives Up

Two white flags flew mysteriously from the Brooklyn Bridge on Tuesday morning, as if the borough didn't invite enough jokes already.

Upon closer examination, the surrender had some deeper significance — the American flags were actually painted white.

Drudge, naturally, saw a metaphor (and a slow news day?):

Rumors the stunt was for a film shoot were quickly contradicted by reports that the NYPD was investigating, and ultimately pulled down the flags.

Brooklyn will rise again, because Queens is just too damn far.
