...than pass an amendment that criminalizes the burning of the American flag. The flag is an idea. A flame my burn and consume the cloth material of the flag, but the idea would never be scorched.

America will contemplate passing legislation that will punish the burning of her flag, but I have faith the notion will be discarded as intemperate.
