In response to Charles Hilton's talk of the yelling "O" during the national anthem ("Stop yelling ‘O' during the national anthem" Readers respond, April 6)I can not say how disgraced I am to have someone in Baltimore feeling this way. The "O" is a sign of city-wide pride. The words to the anthem are not changed or altered to disrespect the nation. I will offer to pay Mr. Hilton's gas so he can pack up and leave our fine city if he does not like what we are about. Finally I would like to remind everyone that we wrote the song here in Baltimore, so why should we not be allowed to show our city pride?
