A letter to the Editor – September 13, 2010


It is unfair, if not even sadly unseemly, for your columnist to speak as he has of “Obama’s Moral Cowardice” (Newsweek, September 13, 2010).  He evidently expects the President of the United States to serve as Commentator-in-Chief, routinely passing public judgment on every harebrained notion that temporarily arouses public notice.  Even enduring issues call for the use of prudence by responsible officials in deciding what to say and when, including about matters that can be far more complicated than your gifted columnist seems to want to acknowledge.

Respectfully yours,

George Anastaplo
