Upside-down Texas flag flummoxes tourists outside National Museum of American History
Can't fool those sharp-eyed tourists. Peggie Pittenridge, visiting from Arizona, was outside the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History last week when she spotted the Texas flag flying with the red stripe on top instead of the white. "It really bugged me that it was upside down," she told us. "I'm pretty patriotic." Pittenridge went inside and buttonholed a curator -- and she wasn't the only one. "Several people noticed it right away, including the director of the museum," said a rep. The error occurred when a number of worn flags around the building were replaced; the Texas flag was waving right side up by Friday.
