I subscribe to a newspaper (the Chicago Tribune) that has an American flag as part of its masthead.
If I throw away my newspaper in the garbage, am I desecrating the flag? Should I burn all of my old newspapers, even if my city has an ordinance against burning trash? If I go to a fish market, do I have to tell them to wrap my purchase in a copy of the Chicago Sun-Times so that the flag will not be brought into disrepute?
I won't even get into the issue of bird-cage liners.
These are indeed weighty and vexing issues Joe . . . obviously, no one with more than half a brain (i'm almost certain you qualify) would switch to The Sun-Times
Well, of course there is the God's True Written Word ammendment and the Dear Leader ammendment.
