Flag Burning Amendment Fails

From YahooNews
The 66-34 tally on the flag amendment Tuesday was one less than the two-thirds, or 67 votes, required to send it to the states for ratification. The House cleared the two-thirds threshold last year, 286-130.
Thank God (or whoever). As Rich Magahiz points out in comments,
This column ran in our local paper today: "The countries that enacted national bans on flag desecration are Cuba, China, Iran, Nazi Germany and Iraq under Saddam Hussein."
