    Here is an intresting news story I found, an attorney in Mississippi was found in contempt of court for refusing to say the pledge of allegiance in court (which is illegal to be forced to do so by the way). He served five hours in jail and was released, people are taking sides but I think the law is on the attorney's side. Honestly incedents like this make me ashamed to be an American.

    Stories like this make me chuckle, and make me thankful I don't live in the US.

    And here's some info, to put the story in a more humorous perspective.
