Interrupting weekend because this deserves a good rant.

It won't surprise anyone here that I don't feel one way or the other about the flag. I'm about as likely to wave it as I am to burn it meaning I tend to leave it alone. But let's pretend I did feel strongly about the flag, took care to bring it in out of the rain, fold it, store it, and never touch the ground. Then I would be pissed. I would be super-pissed. And I would have been pissed long before this at the way the flag as been made into a logo.

One might say the same about the use of the peace sign, and I would tend to agree except on one point. There isn't a movement to keep the peace sign sacred and pass laws against "desecrating" it.
