    It is a sad commentary on life that four living and breathing dissenting JUSTICES of our Supreme Court felt it okay for a state to publicly sanction the right to display a flag, emblem, logo, slogan, etc., as anathematic as the Confederate flag, which epitomizes racial hatred and oppression to any fair-minded, decent individual! Grow up boys!Doubly disturbing is how any jurist, let alone a justice -- Alito -- of our highest court, has the legal astigmatism, brass and stupidity to conflate something as innocuous and humorous as the Texas vanity plate slogan "Rather Be Golfing‘ with a symbol so arrantly discriminatory as the Confederate flag in apology of his position!
