Hey guy at the north end of Michigan St., if you display the US flag, do it right. At night you are supposed to have a light shining on it or take it down.

Driver is confusing the word illuminate with shine a light on it.
A Street lamp or a porch light illuminating the flag is appropriate.
Evidently something was illuminating the Flag for driver to notice it was there at night.

Driver is also confusing etiquette with U.S. Law. Don't forget the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it is lawful to burn the U.S. Flag, as long as the flag is you're property or belongs to you.

I'd say you are pretty lucky to have someone in your neighborhood that flies the U.S. Flag, more people should. Do you?

Hey Driver, Everything OK on Michigan Street now?
Is there anything else in the neighborhood we should know about?
