Letter: Thoughts on Romney, puzzle’s hidden meaning

Reading today’s Standard Examiner (May 3), I found myself connecting two items: First, regarding the front page story on Mitt Romney’s being booed and barely escaping censure—when, in fact, he really deserves a medal of honor for integrity, courage and common sense. Second, the crytoquote ...
