John Brummett of the Arkansas News discusses the 10 year old who refused to recite the pledge of allegiance.  I tend to agree with him.  The rote recitation of the pledge does little to advance national good and as Brummett says is a perversion of the freedom this country was founded on.  The ease of verbally proclaiming ones patriotism without backing it up with substance may have been the root of the famous Samuel Johnson quote.
