The Washington Post is reporting that all you have to do is look up if you want to find out whether Secretary Ryan Zinke is in the Interior Department building.
Says the Post:
"At the Interior Department’s headquarters in downtown Washington, Secretary Ryan Zinke has revived an arcane military ritual that no one can remember ever happening in the federal government.
"A security staffer takes the elevator to the seventh floor, climbs the stairs to the roof and hoists a special secretarial flag whenever Zinke enters the building. When the secretary goes home for the day or travels, the flag — a blue banner emblazoned with the agency’s bison seal flanked by seven white stars representing the Interior bureaus — comes down.''
Zinke's flag ritual and his decision to mint Interior Department coins emblazoned with his name are raising eyebrows, the Post reports.
