Jimmy and I went to President George H.W. Bush’s funeral on Wednesday (“Thousands salute George H.W. Bush funeral train 4141 on final Texas ride,” Dec. 6).

What a terrible impression foreign dignitaries must receive of our country as they drive into our nation’s capital. Surely, something can be done about it.
