The American Flag or "Your Ad Here?"

NYSE - New York Stock ExchangeYou know that giant American Flag that has covered the front of the New York Stock Exchange since shortly after the September 11th terrorist attacks?

Well apparently that particular American flag is not so much a memorial as it is a placeholder for corporate promotion opportunities. Consider it a patriotic version of the ubiquitous “Your ad here” billboards.


Hopefully the Chinese infant formula company promoted there on August 18th, 2009 produces a safer product than the melamine-tainted Chinese baby formula the FDA warned us about last year.

American Capitalism at its finest.
