Dear State Editor,

A couple of questions:

Regarding: "We continue to fly the Confederate flag on our State House grounds, although it offends many of our citizens"

How many is "many"? Is it a number? A percentage? Where did you find this number or percentage? Can I see it too? I have read this many times in your paper and other papers elsewhere (which also, by the way, ALL seem to feel the way you do), but I have yet to have you or any of them tell me where you get your alleged facts from? Can you please let me in on your secret?

and

Assuming that at least some people are offended by the flag being on the Statehouse grounds, where it is written that those who like that flag right where it is must defer to their opinions?? Forgive me, but I have looked high and low in order to find where it is so written, but I am unable to find it. Could you please direct me to your source?
