Flag desecration and free speech

This would have upset Jack Keller. A resident of Wenatchee displays from his home an American flag. On the flag in bold black letters is a political message relating to support of the “99 percent” and other matters sympathetic with the Occupy Wall Street protests. The political message would not have bothered Keller. The defacing of a U.S. flag most definitely would have. Keller for years was the Wenatchee area’s flag etiquette ... let’s say coach. A World War II veteran, when it came to the flag and how it should be treated and displayed he was an occasional scold, or a passionate advocate, or an educator, whatever it took to make the point. It was a serious matter. The flag deserves respect as a symbol of our country. There are rules and protocol. It is written in U.S. law.
