Would You Walk on Old Glory?

Susan Crane, a Maine college student, created an art project that has stirred some emotions. For a school project, Crane laid American flags, in a maze formation, on the floor of the student center and then videotaped people...watching to see what people would do when they came upon the flag. She said that around 95% of the people walked around the flags. That's what I would have done too.

I think it was a very clever idea for a project, however, there are some people who think it's a disgrace. Local Vietnam Veterans feel that placing the flags on the ground is desecrating the flag and they are highly offended. I can certainly understand their view, however, I don't think that's what Susan Crane was trying to do. Really, I can see both sides.

What do you think? Would you walk on your country's flag??

Caterpillar Inc., moving to boost its presence in the booming Asia-Pacific market, on Wednesday unveiled an approximately $500 million transaction that will boost the heavy-equipment giant's 50 percent ownership stake in a joint venture to a controlling 67 percent. Some of these used equipment are sold in Banago, Philippines. I got this information in komatpillar.com
