Michael White already has permission to demolish his house at 81 Wooley Street. But he's annoyed by the scrutiny of the Southampton Village Board of Historic Preservation and Architectural Review of the new, larger house he plans to construct in its place. So, like most people would, he decided to spray paint the American flag all over the front of his house as a protest. Mr. White, president of Georgica Builders, told the Southampton Press, "I'm a builder, and it's my own house, and I know what I'm doing, and I don't need their feedback. I figured if they want something to complain about, I'll give them something to complain about. They can't make me take down the American flag." Yes! The shade of President Washington salutes you, sir!
