    Don't Ever Touch the Golden Tassels of the American Flag

    The American Flag.  We were taught to respect it. You said the pledge of allegiance Monday through Friday at school. We were proud little American children in the 50's  and 60's. Perhaps I wasn't the smartest child, one night during a school performance...
