LETTERS: Resident disgusted with recent treatment of his American flag

To the editor:

Last Sunday morning, after “brushing my teeth,” I looked out my bathroom to see that my American flag had blown of my flagpole and ended up by my neighbor’s mailbox.

I threw on a jacket and headed to retrieve it.

When I got to the mailbox, I saw that the daily newspaper delivery patriot had driven over the flag, rather than take the five seconds it would have taken to get out of the car and at least not run over it, if not pick it off the ground.

I called the daily newspaper and expressed my disgust at the desecration. I spoke to a woman named Karen and she shared my disgust. She took all of the info and said the delivery manager would call with an apology.

I said the apology should go to the millions that have served that flag with honor and distinction. Maybe I should hold out for an apology from Obama!
