We had the first "real" 4-H meeting tonight. It's not a big hall. We all stood up to say the Pledge of Allegiance. My voice projects; I've always been a believer that if you're going to "pledge" to something then you should say it like you mean it.
So we're cranking through the pledge and I just drop a beat of silence for the two words I find offensive. The dB in the room drops dramatically for that moment. One of the high-school kids looked at me as if she'd never heard someone skip the words which turn the pledge into a prayer. [In case you don't know, the phrase "under god" was inserted in 1954.]
I guess she'll just have to get used to it.
I'm especially interested in any of you that use technology or automaion to solve this problem for a sizable work-force spread out in such a way that their only commonly available platform is their web-browser.
