We can't recall our birth and won't remember our death. So, it's what happens in between that has the greatest consequences. I'm looking back at some things that happened. Last week seems like last year—and it was, give or take a day. The president-elect opined that flag burners should either be arrested or have their citizenship revoked. The former Boy Scout in me agrees with his outrage over the infrequent act of torching Old Glory as a political statement, but not the pesky disregard Mr. T has for our constitutionally mandated free speech.
