Respect the Flag TO THE EDITOR From the book "Let's be right on Flag Etiquette" approved by Congress July 7, 1976. "The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water or merchandise." I agree Shawn White is the greatest snowboarder in the world and I humbly congratulate and admire him for that. But when he wins he shouldn't drag the American flag on the ground behind him; life a puppy dog on a leash.

Along with many others across the state, I've been watching the silent T-shirt protest held by Prescott students, with great admiration. To call attention to the race-based sports mascots of visiting teams, specifically the Osceola Chieftains and the Baldwin-Woodville Blackhawks, the Prescott students attend the games while exercising their expressive first amendment rights by wearing shirts with messages pointing out that those mascots promote stereotypes and discrimination.
