Flag stuck at half-mast arouses ire
An Ohio hotel was deluged with threats after its flagpole got stuck at half-mast following the death of Osama bin Laden. “We started getting calls left and right,” said Connie Smith, a manager at the Hampton Inn. “Some guy, I don’t know if he was drunk or what, said, ‘If you don’t take that flag down, I’m going to cut it down.’”

Pilot refuses to fly with imams
Two Muslim imams say they were kicked off an Atlantic Southeast Airlines flight when the pilot refused to fly with them. Masudur Rahman and Mohamed Zaghloul had boarded the plane in Tennessee to attend a conference on anti-Muslim prejudice, but were told to get off because the pilot and passengers were uncomfortable. The airline has apologized “for any inconvenience caused.”
