The conservative airwaves and blogosophere were full of reports on Wednesday that the University of Wyoming had banned a veteran from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at a student government meeting. One problem is that the story wasn't entirely accurate. What really happened is that a student senator asked that the student government meeting start with the pledge. But the student government has a set of rules that state how meetings should start -- and the pledge isn't on the list. Officials said that the senator was told that if he proposed changing the "order of the meeting" to start with the pledge, and if the measure passed, the pledge could in fact start every meeting. But the senator must make the proposal and it must pass.
