It's OK'd by Life and a New York paper. The GAR protests and the paper apologizes and a bill is introduced by the GAR rep that no flag can be flown in the US except old Glory. Life objects and warns that the GAR is losing the respect of the people because of the corruption that has come into it via the pension debate.
