New American Flags, Apparently, on Hyperion Bridge

MEMORIAL DAY NEWS as reported by CityWatch: "Councilman Tom LaBonge and fellow Angelinos [sic] honored the nation's veterans by noting the American flags raised along the landmark Hyperion Bridge... LaBonge allocated about $2,000 for the installation of 30 flags along the historic bridge through revenue generated by advertising on transit benches and kiosks in the Fourth Council District. The flags will fly in commemoration of the Fourth of July and September 11th and will remain in place until September 28, 2008."

AVNC used to pay for these and I think this is at least the 3rd or 4th year in a row they're up there. I wonder why Sept 28? Unless they're using a different company this time, they get pretty raggedy far before Labor day (which is when they used to take them down).
