Glenn Reynolds asks...

For the sake of the world let us hope not. Think of all the greenhouse gases that would be released.


  • After looking at the flag burning cover that Glenn links to on Instapundit, I find myself in the position of having to defend Moore. I recall that the cover of Fahrenheit 451 in my high school library featured a picture of books burning. Fahrenheit 451 does not advocate the burning of books. Therefore, I believe that Moore's point is that the administration is responsible for the destruction of what the flag stands for, and is accusing them of "burning the flag." He is in effect advocating NOT burning the flag. So the comment on this that Glenn links to is disingenuous. And I don't like disingenuous arguments. There is plenty to pick on Moore for legitimately.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have to take a shower.
