  1. I’m glad there wasn’t a flagpole preservation committee formed to save the rotting old one.

  2. Wow, it lasted 79 years? It must have been a FedGov-owned flagpole. Because if it was a VoR-owned flagpole, the VM would have replaced it as her very first VM project, claiming an urgent need to cash in on a federal grant. She doesn’t like to let old things hang around for very long.

  3. I hope they take the old one and thrust it through the heart of the Vampire letter carrier outside the building.

  4. Wow, how did they slip this past the anti-change majority and historical preservation society? Did the Council know about it?

  5. 4:00pm and 6:03pm.
    You are not helping your argument… you just look petty and ridiculous.

  6. 4:00 & 6:03 – it might have something to do with the fact that the new flag pole isn’t twice as big, cost $11 million or line the pockets of a couple of developers. Sour grapes much?

  7. How do we know it didn’t cost $11.5 million? Remember the zillion-dollar toilets in the bathrooms behind the band shell?
