The Olive Garden says they'd been told that, in their town in Alabama, "NO flags or banners are allowed in restaurants unless they have a private meeting room -- the Calhoun County site doesn't -- and yes, that includes the American flag."
Would that really include the American flag? REALLY?
What do you think? Is it so upsetting, so disdainful a flag that it bothers people to have it in their eyesight while they eat? Which people would be offended by it? If this were a small Mexican restaurant in that town and the Mexican flag was used as part of decorations, do you think they'd have to take it down?
