Re Michael Ramirez's June 17 editorial cartoon (Commentary): In addition to taking the word "God" out of the Pledge of Allegiance, maybe we should take "indivisible" out as well. Tom Martin Los Angeles

I see Conrad also does not know the Pledge of Allegiance. This is understandable when his pledge seems to run: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. And to the state of hypocrisy where I live; America wrong or very wrong, communists right or very right, with welfare poor and drugs in every neighborhood except mine. JAMES KNIZEK Santa Ana

I would like to praise Robert Scheer for having the guts to speak out against the arrogant and narrow-minded stand of the overwhelming majority of Americans ("God's Got Nothing to Do With the Pledge of Allegiance Furor," Commentary, July 2). The Pledge of Allegiance should be equally available for all Americans, not just exclusively for the use of individuals who accept a monotheistic belief. Let us never forget that the men who attacked our nation on Sept. 11 believed in "God" but had no respect for the beliefs of others.

After reading the Sept. 16 letters to the editor, I wonder if, instead of deleting "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, it might be time to remove "indivisible" instead. MICHAEL DANIELS Studio City

An article I recently read made my blood boil! State Assemblyman Bill Morrow (R-Oceanside) has voiced the feeling of so many of us who, once again, are appalled by the attitude of a small number of today's young people. For the student government of Saddleback College to decide that the Pledge of Allegiance will not be said at the beginning of their meetings is unconscionable. We are privileged to live in the greatest country in the world. The very structure of our democracy gives us the opportunity to voice our opinions while still protecting the rights of all its people.
