Don’t get rid of anthem at games
Is it really a viable or desirable solution to stop playing the national anthem at football games (“NFL should nix national anthem,” Readers Write, Oct. 2)? By that logic, we should cease all social activities because someone in the crowd might find someone else offensive or someone’s clothing, hairstyle, or T-shirt message rubs them the wrong way.
It’s a safe bet that anyone has the potential to offend anyone else, especially in these times of hypersensitivity, micro-aggression, and hair-trigger faux indignation, but halting practices to avoid being subjected to such horrors is hardly a viable alternative. Give some thought to ignoring things that upset you.
