To the editor:
The Tribune reprinted an editorial April 5 that was originally published by the Bloomington Herald-Times. The editorial dealt with U.S. Sen. Dan Coats’ reaction to being banned from Russia by President Vladimir Putin and Coats’ Twitter posting of the “Top 10 Things I Won’t Be Able To Do Since Putin Banned Me From Russia.”
I agree that Americans, and politicians especially, should not make light of an international crisis. However, I have a more personal reason to be offended by Coats’ remarks.
