I pledge allegiance ... not

This is something that has puzzled me since grade school days: can there be anything less appropriate in the land of the free than to press children to engage in ritual toadying to the state every day?

Shame on you, Rick Snyder. This was a missed opportunity for some leadership and a very teachable moment.

If it wasn't for the fact that "under God" in the Pledge is the last foothold of government promotion of religion in the public schoolrooms, it would have long since been eliminated.
