It's actually against the law to disgrace the flag in any manner. I hate disrespectful pieces of sh*t, we call tomorrow...

and patthebaker, its more like, say someone you loved saved the life of someone else and the mother of the saved victim drew a picture symbolizing what that event meant to her and then her grandkids laid it on the floor. Not that offensive really.

petie-well said. I understand where the vet is coming from, and of course respect his opinion, but I would've been one of those people stepping on the flags. If I had to meet him, I would have told him simply that I was sorry that he had to be in the war.

I don`t care about the american flag at all. While I understand why it is designed the way it is, it has no meaning personally to me. It is not something that I associate myself with or want to, even though I am American. If tomorrow they wanted to change the design or get rid of the flag altogether, I`d be fine with that.

Sparks, I suppose your poop exhibit would be art if it was actually OKed to be done.
Although the student`s art did seem to blatantly show off the fact that it was violating a social construct, I think it was more of a statement of "why can`t *this* piece of cloth touch the ground?" and making a statement about how the flag is somewhat overrated and does not mean to some as it does others.
