I was referring more to a pervasive reverence for government generally, and the concomitant reverence for the symbols of the State.

Case in point, I refer to another post in this very thread that's representative of that theme --

Gyrfalcon: As to her motive, who knows; (we'll never know now) but this wasn't a case of mad-dog cops run amok. Also, she ended up at the White House, and there's no way the Secret Service, in this day & age and with this President, is going to do anything but shoot first and nevermind asking questions. Whether you're a drunken fool going the wrong way or a crazed gunman, if you run the gate at the White House, you may as well figure you WILL die at t ...

Hey Phinn.

I suppose it's possible I could care less than I already do ... in theory ... I guess.
