How do you feel about this?

Photo Credit: OUTLOOK PHOTO: TROY WAYRYNEN - This American flag was flying in this condition at a well-known Gresham landmark earlier this week. Do you think this is unimportant or cause for alarm?Earlier this week the phone rang in The Outlook's newsroom. The caller was a local woman who wanted to express her disappointment in how the American flag was being displayed at a well-known Gresham landmark.

At her urging, we visited the location to see what it was that she was talking about. (See the accompanying photo.)

Her call got us wondering: How strongly do folks here in East County feel about the American flag? And, what's your reaction after seeing this flag displayed in this condition?

We'd like to know, and here's your opportunity to let your voice be heard.
