Yet another make-work project is underway in London: in the name of 'fairness', London rulers are now sifting through a barrage of applications submitted by groups looking to fly their flag alongside the rainbow approved one. If council truly wanted to celebrate their commitment to inclusionary exclusionary diversity, they would simply fly one red flag:
As predicted by Mayor Anne Marie DeCicco-Best, city council is starting to get requests to fly flags at city hall after council voted to fly the Gay Pride flag. In a letter to council, Pastor Troy Dingwell of the King Street Congregational Church of London complained gay groups are getting "special treatment" and said Christian groups should have the same right to have their flags flown. Clerk Kevin Bain advised the board of control yesterday that city staff is working on a report on how other cities handle the flag-flying issue.In other news, a collective group of artists from Argentina are here in London to 'beautify' a portion of the Galleria:
Starting today and continuing for the next two weeks, six Argentine muralists and three from Vancouver will put their talents to work on the street, bringing beauty and visual interest to the bland brick tunnel on King Street between Clarence and Wellington streets.Unlike individuals who support "solitary" artists with their own earnings, Londoners might soon be forced to pay for collective expressions of creativity whether they like it or not.
