Return of Churchill bust


I commend Post-Gazette executive editor David M. Shribman for his excellent discussion in "My Point" about Winston Churchill's role in inspiring "Britain to greatness" and that this inspiration still continues, "70 years on" ("Of Light and Dark and the Finest Hour," June 13 column).

Equally relevant to the "finest hour" was Churchill's statement that "Never has so much been owed by so many to so few" in which Churchill thanked those members of the Royal Air Force in helping to defeat the German air force during the "Blitz" of London.

Yet, despite this "inspiration" our leader and president considered it appropriate to return to Britain the bust of Winston Churchill given to the White House by the people of Britain.

Is this a fitting tribute?
