Reader suggests day to honor US widows

Editor, the Advocate:

Open letter to President Obama, published in my favorite means of news, the Victoria Advocate:

May I have a few minutes of your time - away from your campaign funding, golf games and your fab family vacations? Thank you.

It has occurred to me that it would be a great idea if you would set aside one day a year to honor the legion of wrinkled, white-haired (or dyed) senior widows of our great country. Legion is our name, and we deserve to be recognized for our contribution to society. Please consider this request.
