STEVE INSKEEP, Host:

Bob Flournoy needs all his legal talent to get out of this. The Lufkin, Texas City attorney put on a star-spangled necktie after 9/11. He said he'd wear it until Osama bin Laden was captured or dead. Six years later, the San Antonio Express-News reports, Flournoy's tie is in tatters - so ugly, he wears sweaters over it in summer. So now he has challenged bin Laden to prove he's still alive by this 9/11. Otherwise the tie comes off.
It's MORNING EDITION.
