McCormick is Right: Ditch the confederate flag

Wichita Eagle columnist Mark McCormick writes

Citizens will gather at Veterans Memorial Park on Sunday for a pre-Flag Day celebration in honor of the Stars and Stripes.

But another flag -- the Confederate battle flag -- is still there, too, and removing it could prove a perilous fight.

I think that flag represents enemy combatants and is out of place in a plaza honoring soldiers who defended our country. It should at least be removed during this weekend's Flag Day celebration.
