Problems with the Pledge?

Gerta Farber and Marion Syrek
Monday July 08, 2002

To the Editor: 


May I suggest a rational new pledge: 


I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for Americans of all colors, creeds and cultures. 


Gerta Farber 




To the Editor, 


I hear a great many people who are clamoring that we must retain the daily pledge say that this nation operates under god’s protection. I do not hear anyone explaining how they know god exists. 

Meanwhile, I have a dandy little bridge back in Brooklyn that I would like to sell for a reasonable price.
