Mark Twain said that "literature is the stuff everybody talks about and nobody reads." Replace literature with law. The edict that people WILL fly a flag and go from there really grates my nuts. A request would have been much better. I teach in a Catholic school. When I was told I WOULD say the Lord's Prayer every day with my class I did not. I said it in my head, because I like the prayer. This is the reason I was sent to the principal's office so ofetn when I was young. Now, I am old, and I still get sent to the principal's office.
And where they make a desert they call it peace. Tacitus.
