I've got this message from one list. Could the community kindly comment on
the phrase 'red herring' - its etimology and the associations.

    It really isn't difficult to get.  The American Flag is one of many
symbols that represent the American Constitution.  Among other several
symbols, the Confederate Flag represents the Confederate Constitution.
We reject the Confederate Flag because we do not accept its
Constitution.  Hence, we need to see that supporting the Confederate
Flag re-establishes a struggle between two consitutions.  If we really
want this struggle in America, then we need to be debating competing
constitutions.  The flag is a red herring.
    In the meantime, here's a point of view recently over the 'Net
regarding 'W'.  Pass the word.

Thank you,
