This is in response to a recent letter to the editor from Buck Horn. I know Buck, and he's one heck of a good guy. He's a patriot, civic worker, and used to be a neighbor down the hall in our office complex.
I like his idea of wearing a particular color on Fridays to honor the troops, but I think it should be black rather than red. Black is the color of mourning, and I mourn for the ones who aren't returning more than celebrate those who are still there. I'll wear red to celebrate the end of this miserable administration who put them all there unnecessarily.
