Letters To The Editor

Flag Burning?

Not In Nebraska

Editor:

The State of Missouri recently legalized the burning of the U.S. flag, disguising it as freedom of speech. This is the very definition of hypocrisy coming from a State where burning a cross is a felony.

Burning the U.S. flag is an act of intimidation and hatred every bit as harmful as the myriad of acts condemned as hate crimes. Patriotic Americans need to stand up for themselves and demand the same consideration that we are expected to give the, protected classes.

Write to your State representative or direct to the Governor and collectively say, Not in Nebraska! to burning the U.S. flag.

Mark Scheetz

Endicott, Neb.

Editor:

Ive been talking to Maurice Cumro about these home remedies that dont work.
