I am appalled at the lack of respect given the commander in chief of our nation. The Chronicle has no problem acknowledging the titles of foreign dignitaries or local politicians. Even criminals are referred to as "Mr."
I am sure it would not have used up that much ink to print "President" in front of Mr. Bush's name. If you don't respect the man, at least respect the office he holds.
I, for one, have the highest regard for our president. He has shown his mettle in the handling of the situation brought about by the events of Sept. 11. He deserves our respect and support.
