Another flag ban in the works

In Florida, the Hernando County School Board will consider banning clothing that displays any flag other than the American flag. Once again, the target is the Confederate flag, but in order to try an pass a constitutional regulation, in addition to preventing Southerners from displaying the Southern flag, they will prevent Floridians from displaying the Florida flag, Cubans from the Cuban flag, etc.

The American Civil Liberties Union, says the proposal was "overly broad" and would create "serious first amendment problems."
