I note the letter to your newspaper from Mr. Rice, the president of Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #32, in your Friday, 19 May 17 (online) edition. Mr. Rice states he "was wondering if anybody else has a problem with" the idea of using the iconic red "Support Our Troops" t-shirts on the scarecrows. I thank Mr. Rice for inviting others to comment.
The Legion's concern for appearances and propriety is most laudable. We have all seen some pretty tacky and tasteless presentations that involve some of our most cherished symbols.
