Eric Halfman: Wearing U.S. flag T-shirt is never wrong

Regarding “A misuse of the American flag” (Opinions, March 10): You will have trouble convincing me that wearing an American flag (in the United States) should be illegal.

Thumbs down to Ruben Navarrette Jr. for trying to explain why wearing an American flag T-shirt is a bad thing. Perhaps Navarrette should have asked himself, “Is something wrong with a school having a celebration when students might cause a ruckus over different flags?

Canceling free speech, even for one day, in order to have a party is a shame. The school should have canceled the celebration, or had the celebration while letting students wear flags (including, gasp, American flags).
