Annals of Justice: flag burning edition

As we know, the wave of flag burnings has reached such epidemic proportions that the Senate almost approved a Constitutional Amendment that makes flag burning illegal. One would also hope the Surgeon General would issue a report on the dangers of secondary smoke from flag burnings.

Since the need for a flag burning amendment has become apparent to all but the most obtuse, one is led to wonder about the eventual punishment for flag burning. Will it be a capital crime punishable by death? Will it be a misdemeanor offense where you get a $25 ticket if you are caught? Will you be able to burn several flags at a discounted rate? Will there be group rates?

Inquiring minds like mine want to know.
