AMHERST, Massachusetts (CNN) -- As Americans embrace the U.S. flag in a show of defiance against terrorists, the red, white and blue has stirred up controversy in a New England town. It started in August when the town of Amherst put up a set of 29 flags at the urging of a group of veterans. Around Labor Day, the flags came down. Veterans said it was because of complaints, but town officials said the removal was always scheduled, pending a public debate and vote. On September 10, the Select Board voted 4-1 to fly the flags on six specified holidays. Other flags fly year-round at the town common and the police and fire stations. During the debate, University of Massachusetts physics professor Jennie Traschen offered a controversial take on what the American flag means. "It's a symbol of terrorism and death and fear and destruction and repression," she told the Select Board. Here email her... lboo@physics.umass.edu http://www.physics.umass.edu/directory/profile$key=Traschen,+Jennie Man I hate when people like her get entrenched and get tenure. People like her are the reason I hate academia. Their ideas are too stupid or outlandish to get support in the private sector so they must go and teach somewhere

It finally dawned on me when I was i Russia. A man was telling me the process by which his country became free from the USSR. "We gave written petition, and then we were given our freedom". Run that bloody rag up the flagpole baby! The stripes symbolize the bandages because our freedoms and our rights were taken! Wave it in their faces! It will be blood before anything changes here.
