That didn't take long


10:30 AM
The 29 Commemorative flags come down the morning after the Amherst 250th Parade (until Veterans Day). Of course, if some people in the People's Republic had their way the flags would only fly once every 250 years.

Totally in your imagination. They just don't think they should be on 9/11. Interestingly, General McChrystal, the current commander of the forces in Afghanistan, ordered the bases not to lower the flags to half-staff anymore when soldiers are killed. He said we've got to look forward not back. I guess he's not as big a patriot as Larry.

Well if you average one loss per day that's 365 per year and the flag would never be at full staff.

In Massachusetts, all STATE flags are lowered when the Governor orders it. And he has seen fit to honor those from our state who have given their last measure of devotion. I suggest you take it up with him.
