Student Flag Project At The University Of Maine Causes Stir:
A Maine college student has caused a firestorm after plastering the floor of a campus building with American flags to see if anyone would trample Old Glory.
Susan Crane, a student at the University of Maine, Farmington, placed hundreds of flags on the floor of the school's student center Tuesday for an art class assignment. She set down the flags in a maze-like pattern to document whether students and staff would step on them.
Several Vietnam veterans are up in arms about the treatment of the American flag in the video above. I'll be honest with you, I've never understood this obsession about flag treatment. The United States is so much more than a silly flag with some stars and stripes or a pretty song that rhymes in all the right parts. I think arguing about the desecration of the flag shown in this video is the lowest form of argument. What's the source of anger here? Veterans didn't fight to defend the flag of this great nation, they fought to defend the citizens. Let's let the silly college student continue with her social experiment and be glad she's not pretending to abort babies for fun.
