19. I'm tired of having the flag lowered all the time.

Seriously. When I was growing up it was lowered for the death of Kennedy in 1963. It was quite a novelty. I remember it lowered for the passing of Eisenhower in 1969. It may have been lowered to mark the passing of Herbert Hoover in 1965, I don't remember. Now it gets lowered almost all the time, it seems.

Worst is that it is lowered on Sept. 11 and Dec. 7th, when America was the target of hostile attacks. The last days it ought to be lowered.

Stop fiddling with Old Glory. Raise her high. And get that silly, depressing POW/MIA flag away from it.
