WaPo: A teacher stepped on an American flag during a free speech lesson.

Interesting. In fifth grade, during a school play, I tripped over a cast iron prop and fell on my face, taking the American Flag with me. My schoolmates continued to badger me for ‘ruining’ a flag for about a month. “You’re going to JAIL!” I remember the earnest fifth grade conversations over whether floorboards were ‘ground.’ Teacher was an ex-Marine, Guadalcanal. He didn’t bat an eye, so I didn’t.
