Flags often lowered for foreign dignitaries

In response to the writer who was critical of the Dec. 11 cartoon regarding Nelson Mandela and the Pickens County sheriff, the letter cites the sheriff's decision as based on the fact that the flag should "only be lowered for citizens of the U.S." It says that the sheriff was "recognizing and honoring that long tradition from our founding." This would be fine, if it were true, but that's not the case.
