Not Anti-War, Just Anti-American

points us to this letter
from a Sherry Franzen of Eugene Oregon (6th letter down).
In response to Tabitha Perkins (letters, May 11) encouraging us to tie a yellow ribbon to support the troops no matter how one feels about the war, and to everyone else of like mind: I do not support the troops who are willing to kill for their government, for the money it pays, for the education they may receive later - if they make it home alive with their brains intact - or any patriotism they claim to represent. A yellow ribbon should denote cowardice in the case of welcoming these people home.
I say tie a blood-red ribbon on your arm, ...to show support for those willing to save blood for worthy endeavors.
Yes, Sherry, why don't you tie that blood red ribbon on your arm nice and tight. Don't worry, the tingling sensation will go away eventually.
