Edward R. Myers used to ride motorcycles and fly his own airplane. But all that seemed too dangerous after he got married and had children. So the Sterling man took up a new pastime: suing the government.

He is most passionate about his opposition to reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools, which Myers believes unconstitutionally mingles God and government and dilutes his religion.
