    White flags raised at Brooklyn Bridge

    The NYPD is investigating a major security breach at the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the bridge connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. The flags had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes. The American flags that are normally up at the bridge appeared to have been removed.

For the moment, San Diego Mayor Bob Filner is still welcome in his 11th-floor City Hall office, despite a burgeoning recall movement against him after more than a dozen women came forward to allege sexual harassment, either through unwanted advances or inappropriate statements. 

However, the 70-year-old former Congressman is very much unwelcome in Hooters. 

Four San Diego-area branches of the national chain best known for having waitresses wear tank tops and tight orange shorts have posted signs saying that they would not serve Filner. 

"This establishment recognizes that we all have political differences and we serve people from all walks of life," the signs read. "We also believe it is imperative for people to have standards. The mayor of San Diego will not be served in this establishment. We believe women should be treated with respect."

Fox5SanDiego.com reported that the signs were available for download from the website of national TV and radio personality Glenn Beck, formerly of Fox News. 

Melissa Fry, the marketing director for Hootwinc, which operates Hooters franchises on the West Coast, said the embattled mayor is also banned from Hooters locations in the nearby towns of Mission Valley, Oceanside and Rancho Bernardo.

Filner has not been seen publicly since entering a two-week therapy session. His representatives have said that the mayor would not be available for public comment this week while he receives outpatient care.
