Patriotism or marketing tool?

American flags fly from used cars on a lot in Arlington County, Virginia. The owner of the lot says he's flying the flags to show patriotism, but some wonder if the flag is turning into a giant marketing tool. "These days, if you want to stay in business, you'd better have a flag in the window or somewhere on your premises," says Arlington businessman Sam Gibbons. "I had the flag out of my window for a few minutes one day to wash the windows and somebody came in and asked 'why did you take down your flag?' Don't get me wrong. I support this country, but I shouldn't have to fly the flag to get customers in the door."
