A nice (and by nice, I mean nasty) illustration of both the cause and results of flag burning and desecration laws. I remember seeing Clavell's "A Children's Story" when I was a kid and finding it creepy as hell, and it planted seeds in me that grew into questions about propaganda, indoctrination, and education. So why am I not surprised to see students disqualified for performing it?

Jeez, on Wednesday I write about anti-flag burning types not being able to handle complexity, and on Friday I read a story perfectly illustrating the point. Kinda creepy, really.
