APPARENTLY SOME PEOPLE THINK IT ISN’T JUST A FRINGE; “DÉCOR IS NOT A DETERMINANT FOR JURISDICTION”
I mentioned last month a blog post that discussed the yellow fringe that you see on some U. S. flags. That post quoted the Attorney General of the United States as saying that it’s just fringe, it doesn’t mean anything.
I was not aware that there are some people who think fringe on the flag has great significance. They think it means that the courts displaying flags with fringe on them don’t have jurisdiction over ordinary persons. To which a federal judge replied with this eminently quotable line: “décor is not a determinant for jurisdiction.”
