Should students be required to say the Pledge of Allegiance at school?

Frankly, this feels like a transparent attempt to draw a response from a declining readership. Is patch.com in trouble?

@Edward A. I kind of have to agree with you. Especially given some recent headlines about Patch and the firing of their creative director last week. http://techcrunch.com/2013/08/13/aol-ceo-tim-armstrong-apologizes-for-brutally-firing-employee-during-patch-all-hands-call/ I'd love to see Patch to a piece of their own on this.

I didn't actually know about all that, but, frankly, I think he should have been fired -- not for filming the meeting, but for being responsible for the new site layout. I think the local editors realize what drives traffic to theie site is a rich platform for arguing with your neighbors about local news, in a way most people are reluctant to do on Facebook. However, the inability to add hyperlinks or blank lines to comments, reply to specific comments, tag comments or users, "like" comments, embed images, format text, etc. makes this feel like a college-project HTTP/POST web-form from 1999. It is a truly awful and amateurish social networking platform.
