The amendment to ban flag burning went down in defeat by a single vote. 66-34 I know I heard all the arguments against it. But some things are just worth honoring. The
Seattle Times headline reads Senate narrowly turns back flag amendment as if some great tragedy was about to happen if the amendment passed. This is fast becoming a nation of tribes with no unifying values or traditions. Erase the borders, tear down our religious symbols and sell out to the enemy in search of a Pulitzer.
