People can still revoke their American citizenship, can't they??

From Friday's Best of the Web:

"More than 20 Ohio University students, Athens residents and out-of-town visitors sprawled out on sidewalks around campus [Wednesday], symbolically 'dying' to protest the war in Iraq," reports Ohio Daily, a student paper:

"We were looking for a way to visually represent the war in Iraq, something that would really make an impact," said Fiona Mitchell, an Interact member and organizer of the event.

One woman, 46-year-old Connie Harris, carried "a sign of an upside-down American flag with the word 'shame' above it." Harris told the Daily: "I was born in America, and I can honestly say I'm not proud to be an American." Finally, an "antiwar" activist who owns up to being unpatriotic!
