Donald Lambro is wrong when he writes that ” when a member of Congress dies, flags are flown at half-staff until interment” (“Paying respect, even to adversaries,” Web, Aug. 30). In fact, the U.S. Code states that the flag should be lowered to half-staff “on the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress.”
Clearly, the White House was following protocol and Mr. Lambro should have done even cursory research before spreading another untruth that makes our president look bad. We have enough misleading propaganda coming from the manstream media; we do not need more in the venerable Washington Times.
