Old Glory, show her respect

    Patriotic display of our nation’s flag is a good thing. Nonetheless, American’s all too often show abysmal ignorance of the Flag Code (properly referred to as “United States Code Title 4 Chapter 1 - The Flag”).
    Carefully read Section 8 of the code (my comments in parentheses):
    No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
