LETTER TO THE EDITOR: ‘Bravo Zulu’ to Times’ opinion

Question of the Day

What has been the biggest debacle on Obama's watch?

The Washington Times’ editors may know that the highest accolade in the U.S. Navy is two simple words: “Well done.” They may not know that the flag-hoist signal for this phrase is “Bravo Zulu.” Friday’s Commentary section contained three columns that individually and collectively deserve that accolade: “Song of the shopkeeper” and, under the shared headline “American’s moment of truth,” two with the subheads “Only tough leadership can save economy” and “The last conservative, Pat Buchanan.”

I suggest The Washington Times assemble these pieces into a simple pamphlet and shower them on the “Occupy Wall Street” bunch wherever and whenever these people assemble. A “Bravo Zulu” to the editors at your newspaper, the authors of these pieces and to Pat Buchanan, whose book I am downloading and will begin reading shortly.
