Dan Saves the Flag
Dan Maffei rescued justice, liberty and the Hudson River highlands Tuesday. Symbolically, anyway.
Maffei, a Democratic candidate challenging Republican Rep. Jim Walsh, saved a New York state flag - which bears symbols of those things - from a downpour in Clinton Square, according to Ed Kinane, a participant in "Eyes Wide Open: New York," a display on the human cost of the Iraq war.
"Dan was wearing a suit, and he ran out in the rain and got the flag," which was part of the presentation, said Kinane.
