I have great affection for one of our last true media 'clowns', and have great respect for the person he was.
But sadly, although I believe in God, I cannot in fair conscious agree that the words "under God" do NOT represent a prayer, and allusion to a
belief common to the "All" so eloquently addressed within the pledge. The words don't belong there unless this country is to openly change it's
nature to that of a nation which rejects and excludes those who don't believe in God.
It almost breaks my heart to see those words disappear, but my beliefs belong in me, not in a pledge of solidarity to my country.
