Culture and Size Wars

I just heard on the NBC Today show that when the New York Philharmonic played in North Korea this morning, there was a delay of game due to a size war...a flag size war. The Koreans had put up a bigger flag than had been agreed to in earlier negotiations.

But trust the USians to have brought a bigger one, too, and the delay was short while the appropriately-sized US flag replaced the earlier-agreed size.

I'm delighted that the delegation actually thought to bring a bigger flag along!
