In some cases, yes.

Funny how perspective changes.
Now that I am looking rural, I've gone from looking at 'feet' of back yard to acres.

New York Times:
Inmates in a women’s prison near the Chinese border are said to have experienced a “collective mass psychosis” so intense that their wardens summoned a priest to calm them. In a factory town east of Moscow, panicked citizens stripped shelves of matches, kerosene, sugar and candles. A huge Mayan-style archway is being built — out of ice — on Karl Marx Street in Chelyabinsk in the south.

For those not schooled in New Age prophecy, there are rumors the world will end on Dec. 21, 2012, when a 5,125-year cycle known as the Long Count in the Mayan calendar supposedly comes to a close. Russia, a nation with a penchant for mystical thinking, has taken notice.

Last week, Russia’s government decided to put an end to the doomsday talk. Its minister of emergency situations said Friday that he had access to “methods of monitoring what is occurring on the planet Earth,” and that he could say with confidence that the world was not going to end in December. He acknowledged, however, that Russians were still vulnerable to “blizzards, ice storms, tornadoes, floods, trouble with transportation and food supply, breakdowns in heat, electricity and water supply.”

Similar assurances have been issued in recent days by Russia’s chief sanitary doctor, a top official of the Russian Orthodox Church, lawmakers from the State Duma and a former disc jockey from Siberia who recently placed first in the television show “Battle of the Psychics.” One official proposed prosecuting Russians who spread the rumor — starting on Dec. 22.

“You cannot endlessly speak about the end of the world, and I say this as a doctor,” said Leonid Ogul, a member of Parliament’s environment committee. “Everyone has a different nervous system, and this kind of information affects them differently. Information acts subconsciously. Some people are provoked to laughter, some to heart attacks, and some — to some negative actions.”


Wait, wait, Minister of Emergency Situations??? Oh, that's just too cool.

Drones flown by the Air Force near places such as Virginia Beach, Va., have the cameras and sensors to track moving ground targets for hours at a time.
The Reaper drone capable of both spying on people and firing missiles at them has spent much of its time prowling the skies above Nevada, California and Utah.

You haven't met her husband, or their neighbors?

In Virginia, it doesn't necessarily mean any more than flying the state flag.
As long as people in hollywood and other parts of the country make racist slurs about the south, the southern national flag and southerners, the longer it will be flown.
Texas still flies their national flag.
Before getting too sensitive about flags, it is worth examining some events the american flag has flown over, which include fascism, slavery and genocide.
It is worth knowing reality about anything you are tied to.

I would suggest they look to intent, rather than the flag.

It is also advisable not to refer to Virginia as "up north", even when you have to go north to get there.

The new husband is a darling man and I dont think he knows what a dynamo he is now attached to. My daughter has been living in DC, working in NYC and Europe .
He has been flying off of carriers and thinks he is ready for all events.
The only time so far that he looked alarmed was when the dog jumped on his "whites".
Hah.
