On the holiday when American freedoms are celebrated, spectators at the Annapolis Independence Day parade reserved their biggest cheers for freedom of the press — specifically, as practiced by their hometown newspaper.... Rep. John Sarbanes wore a “Press on” T-shirt as he walked the parade route. His office forwarded a request from Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley to the White House to order the American flag lowered in recognition of the shooting at the newspaper.
