July 19, 2011 | 05:17 PM Today I received your 7/18 "violation notice" in the mail. It refers to a "towel" hanging in our front window, visible from the street.
It's not a towel. It's a Marine Corps flag. Our 19 year old son is a Lance Corporal on active duty. He's a graduate of Alpharetta High School. A friend gave it to him as a gift after he completed basic training. We miss him, but it's better that he's not here to witness this.
Perhaps you will tell me that you mistook a Marine Corps flag for a "towel" during your "inspection". That's forgivable. But if you tell us that we must take it down or you will fine us, that would be shameful. John Klein
