FOOD AND PATRIOTISM

Mary Jenney of Columbus, Ohio, waves the American flag at Margueritagrill in Homosassa on Dec. 10. Each weekend, the restaurant on the Halls River and its owners pause to remember the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Customers are given American flags and a choice: Either wave the flag or leave. Co-owners Tommy and Sammy Piliouras' insistence on flag waving sparked a violent outburst in November. But the ceremony is popular with many people, who believe in the Piliourases' brand of patriotism. See story, FLORIDIAN.
