Package For Iraq — a Point I Missed

Concerning the package of goodies for the troops in Iraq

, a sharp-eyed reader

observes: “The thing that struck me most about the picture (and perhaps you

can confirm it) is the folded flag on the mantelpiece and what looks to be a

gold star below it, signifying that the family has lost someone in service

to the country.

“If so, interesting that this lady’s response is to support the troops in

Iraq in a meaningful way rather than act as one of the bitter, blame game,

media hogs that are the darling of the press.

“I hope it is NOT true for the one reason that I hope the lady has not

suffered a loss of this magnitude.”

I share that hope. Perhaps the Milwaukee reader who sent me the picture

could clarify.
