After the city decided not to fly the Pride flag outside Edmonds City Hall this year, someone used chalk to draw a flag on the sidewalk in front of the building. (Reader submitted photo)
  1. I support just flying America’s red, white and blue flag ,,, it represents America. Individuals, support groups and businesses can flag-fly their choice, but not gov’t offices/buildings. Will there be an Irish flag for St Patrick’s day, a Holocaust flag, a Norwegian Independance flag, Cinco de Mayo flag, Bastille Day flag? etc, etc.

    1. I guess I would just say that the history of discrimination against LGBT and the risk that the discrimination will return makes the Pride flag appropriate where the Norwegian, Holocaust and Cinco de Mayo flag are not necessary appropriate.
