Letter: Flag discussion comes down to history


To the editor,

The news lately makes a big deal about some southern states having discussions about flying a rebel flag celebrating aspects of the Civil War. There was a war, and they lost, period. For anyone to display their old banner to celebrate their efforts, anywhere, for any reason, would be like the Germans today flying a Swastika. Let’s grow up.

A slightly similar situation arises with some folks in the southwest wanting to fly a Mexican flag over their local schools.

Some folks simply don’t understand history. Remember the Alamo.
