What do you make of it, and the two year rule? Is a three year jail penalty appropriate? How should the law spell out clearly the disrespectful behavior to avoid unrealistic provisions during the drafting process? All schools will be required to teach the anthem - how will that work? When should it be played? After 9.20, elderly support in light of a tragedy in which an 81 year-old man killed his wife.
