Springfield Hotel Threatened Because Flag Gets Stuck on Pole

A Springfield, Ohio Hampton Inn has been receiving dozens of angry calls in the aftermath of Osama bin Laden’s death due to a frayed flag.

Two days before bin Laden was killed, the hotel staff noticed the flag was frayed. A maintenance man began to lower it in order to replace the flag, and the flag got stuck halfway down the pole. Because of nonstop rain and wind storms in the next couple of days, the hotel was unable to send another maintenance man to remove the flag.

After news of bin Laden’s death, people who saw the flag stuck halfway down the pole assumed it was at half-staff to honor bin Laden.

One prospective guest even told the hoteliers he was not going to honor his reservation in light of the hotel’s “support” of bin Laden.
