Flagging Patience

Posted By on Fri, Jun 9, 2006 at 10:44 AM

Speaking of loons and the Arizona Legislature, is there some particular problem our legislators are hoping to solve by requiring U.S. flags be posted in every classroom in the state? If one of the 20 senators who voted for the measure (or any member of the House who voted in favor of their own version earlier) can explain precisely what that problem is and how displaying the flag -- 2-by-3 feet and American made, of course -- will mitigate it, I'll be willing to reserve judgment about them being the worst sort of pandering frauds. At least until the next piece of nonsensical legislation comes along.
