on wearing flag
I was paying attention in the ’60s when anti-war protesters were attacked in no uncertain terms for their wearing of the flag. It was seen as blasphemous and not at all the way one who loves this country would behave. We wore that flag in the same manner as the anti-gun control protester on the cover of my Sunday paper. This time I don’t hear any complaints. Apparently, it is now acceptable to wear your flag as a Superman cape. Good to know.
