Letters to the Editor 

Dear NWTBDFW,Re: Lowering the flagNice soapbox. Did you even read V.L. Israel's letter? No mention of lives being less valuable, no mention of not respecting our troops sacrifice. In fact, what is mentioned is that we have more valuable ways of supporting our troops than lowering the flag. The important point you missed was that Paul Martin started lowering the flag for personal gain.....to bolster his political career. A worthy tradition we should uphold. By the way, where were you when the flag wasn't being lowered to half-mast? Obviously lobbying to have it done. I'm not 'over in Afghanistan running around risking my life' so I guess I have nothing to say on the matter (your words). Unless you're on-line from Kabul or Kandahar I respectfully suggest that you don't either.
