re: criminalizing iconoclastic symbol-defacing  and coercion of the "Pledge 
of Allegiance" on children, I offer this modest double- haiku as an antidote to 
the new-found patriotism of Todd Gitlin and in honor of the atheist guy who 
argued the case to the Supreme Court:

If the flag don't stand
 for the right to burn the flag, 
it stands for nothing 

worth pledging an oath
of allegiance to, so you
 might as well burn it.
