Pledge ruling un-American

A Sacramento federal judge has declared the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag as unconstitutional. How terrible, shocking and very un-American.

I believe I have a simple solution. If the parents, in this case Michael Newdow, don't want their kids to say the Pledge, especially the phrase "under God," then write a note to the child's teacher and ask that the child be excused from reciting the Pledge. Why should Mr. Newdow, an atheist, force his views on everybody else?
