FLAG FOIBLES 

FLAG FOIBLES

Throughout the South controversy over flags most notably the Confederate battle flag and state flags that incorporate that flag into their design is out of control. Tennessee, whose own state flag is among the most tasteful and elegant in the nation, may soon be entering a similar fray. At the urging of a Methodist youth group, State Rep. John Mark Windle has sponsored a bill to add the words In God We Trust to Tennessee s flag. To avoid the church vs. state arguments which will surely spring up around this issue, we suggest that Windle alter the bill to include the words All others pay cash.
