I have strange dreams.

I had a dream a few years ago that I was back in high school. Not unusual, right?

In this case, we were all the age we were in present day. I looked around at my classmates and said “Why are we here? We’re all adults in our mid to late 30’s and we have long since graduated. Let’s get out of here.”

Pop

My beard is going gray like the individual hairs are microwave popcorn. Pop pop, gray.

Pop pop pop pop pop. More gray.

Pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop pop.

A quick note on flag burning:

  • The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

Not only is flag burning not illegal, it is the preferred method of disposing of a flag in the U.S. Flag Code. What is being discussed in banning “flag burning” is not burning itself, but burning with specific intent or to send a specific message.
