Another Sad Story

Amherst College flag on Chapel Hill today

Yesterday in a statement to the Amherst College community President Biddy Martin broke the sad news of the sudden passing of popular employee Pema Tsering, and today their majestic flag atop Johnson Chapel is in mourning.

And since Amherst College is a private entity they are entitled to do whatever they want with their American flag, unlike state of federal institutions.

Either way, flag police are forgiving when the cause is just.

Thank you flag police. You are cruel but fair.

"Cruel to be kind, in the right measure."

Since they are a private institution they should pay mandatory taxes.

Actually Amherst College is our #1 taxpayer in town.
