Confederate Flag on the Move

NPR's Adam Hochberg reports on the approved removal of the confederate battle flag from South Carolina's capitol dome. Last night, Governor Jim Hodges signed legislation that would move the flag to a site honoring confederate soldiers, saying he hoped this compromise between flag supporters and opponents would put the debate into South Carolina history. The NAACP says it isn't satisfied with the move, and wants to expand its boycott of the state. But many state business leaders consider the flag compromise adequate.
