Jonah: In re the Florida teen who told the hitman to shoot his Mom but
spare the TV, one canot but recall dear old Barbara Frietchie
“Shoot, if you must, this old gray head,
But spare your country’s flag,” she said.
This is really just an early-21st-century version of Barbara Frietchie.
After all, I have no doubt that there are several millions of American teens
who value their TV higher than their country’s flag.
