Texas Flag Chaos

From the looks of it, it seems the Texas flag up at the courthouse has been caught on the top of the flag pole which apparently prevents it from being lowered by the use of cables. It's been that way for a couple of days. Why the locals aren't rioting is beyond me. At first I thought it was a distress signal and I almost stormed that place like Santa Anna. But I stopped halfway once I realized what was going on (but after I had already ripped the buttons of my dress shirt in preparation for battle.) Those colors don't run. But they can get all whopperjawed.
