Not putting your hand over your heart during the national anthem? Huh? I have been to many hockey games where the Americans there didn't do that.

Besides, I thought you were supposed to put it over your heart during the Pledge of Allegiance.

(In fact, once in Dallas some stranger got in my face when I didn't put my hand over my heart and recite the POA, and was shocked when I said I was Canadian and asked why I should pledge allegiance to a foreign flag. Would he? It was the first shoe to drop when I thought about moving back to Canada.)

One day I hope Americans wake up and see these tactics for what they are.

Hi Dan, I've printed it out, but haven't read it yet. I really like Salon, and I really like Juan Cole.
