Fake Flags and Cartoon Dogs in Rhode Island

Gov Don Carcieri (R-RI) put up with the Hollywood film crews taking down a chandelier from the statehouse ceiling. He bit his tongue when they replaced lamps with statues and built a false front to the Senate chamber.

But when they flew a fake flag from a fictional city over his capitol (left) -- that was the last draw.

He's looking into the way the state loans out it's state capitol for movies. Like for this particular epic -- "Underdog." It's a live action version of the 1960s cartoon that featured Marlon Brando's roomate Wally Cox (right).

Stay classy, Providence! (Boston Globe)
