It’s Flag Season in the U.S. Congress once again. As early as tomorrow, the Senate may be voting to amend the Constitution (specifically, to amend the Bill of Rights — even more specifically, to amend the First Amendment) to protect a piece of red, white, and blue cloth. Thanks to the ACLU, however, you can send a free fax to your Senators telling them to oppose this effort. You can also find more information at People For the American Way’s flag amendment website. See also this curious story about the possibility that the Senate will try to outlaw flag desecration through a mere statute.
