"Jane Kim, the up-and-coming San Francisco supervisor, refuses to say the Pledge of Allegiance when it's recited at the beginning of board meetings. She objects to the phrase 'with liberty and justice for all,' saying that she doesn't believe that this country provides liberty and justice for all. Naturally, she's taken a lot of heat for her stand, mostly from people who can't vote for her. Commentators called her unpatriotic. I personally don't believe that patriotism has much to do with reciting rote words in a public setting." (02/11/111)
