Today the Brooklyn Paper talks to a man who hangs a Confederate flag from the balcony of his apartment. He doesn’t even particularly love the Confederacy, though he does share its spirit of rebellion. “I do it because I’m against political correctness,” the man, who identifies himself only as Mike, tells the paper. The fact that this is rare enough to be a newspaper story makes us wonder: Is anyone else in this city of 8 million brazen enough to fly the Confederate flag? Have you seen it anywhere else?
