U.S. flag's condition matches that of our Constitution

Reporting on the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, a TV news program showed video of the U.S. flag, flapping atop its pole at the Capitol. It had been torn nearly lengthwise twice.
Besides on public grounds, the flag is prominently displayed by businesses and on private property by homeowners often, too, regardless of the weather. Inconvenience, disinterest or obliviousness is probably why.
As for the one at the Capitol, it is ignored, along with the Constitution it represents.
