Tie a Yellow Ribbon Around this Ban

There's controversy in Litchfield, Connecticut and it has to do with yellow ribbons. The town has banned them, but people keep putting them up.

First off, how on earth is 'Tying a yellow ribbon' to honor US troops overseas a bad thing?

The town board says the main reason for banning the ribbons is because the worn and tattered ribbons are a disrespectful display.

OK...So how about mandating that the ribbons that are tattered be replaced rather than removed?

Not that I long for the 70's, but as far as this ban goes, Tony Orlando and Dawn said it best. Go ahead and "Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Old Oak Tree"
