Put Mississippi flag in its place

Letter to the editor

Posted: Wednesday, August 10, 2005

I object to the Mississippi state flag in front of Centennial Hall flying higher than the nearby Alaska and U.S. flags.

I can respect the citizens of Mississippi in their right to retain the Confederate flag within their own state flag, and I also respect the intention of the flag committee flying all 50 state flags along our waterfront to honor our visitors, but this emblem of slavery should not be flying higher than the U.S. flag or our own state flag.
