Care of the American Flag.

Browsing the archives of Constantly Amazed, Yet Never Surprised, I came to this post with a picture depicting a man covered in American flags.

I went looking for Flag Rules and Regulations, which says, "The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery." The Boy Scouts of America agree: "The national flag should not be used as a costume or athletic uniform."

Also, when a flag is worn out and no longer fit to display, the proper way to dispose of it is by burning.

Update: SheaNC points out his own follow-up to the post I linked above. He discusses the hypocrisy of claiming patriotism while mistreating our flag.
