Letter: The flag at half-staff
I am not sure what the criteria is to have flags flown at half-staff. Growing up, it seemed to be for really important deaths -- for example, President Kennedy. Now it seems like whenever a governor or president feels like it. I wonder if they do it to make themselves seem like...

Letter: Bring back God in our lives
I guess I am missing the big picture on the burning of the Quran. I am not for it, but then I do not believe in burning the Bible or our flag. But yet we allow it and do not raise the actions to such a level as the burning of the Quran. I am tired of taking a back seat as a Christian...
