Dear Editor:
Since this is Veteran's day, and being a Veteran, this letter seems appropriate. I realize that as you read this, in the grand scheme of things, this may be considered trivial to some. However, the Supreme Court of the US is a very important branch of the US government. Thus deserving all the respect of such a branch. I have recently noticed your editorials on the "Supremes". I am wondering whether the label is being used out of; laziness (to shorten work), a put down (because of a disagreement with a ruling), or perhaps in jest. However, being a former US Marine, veteran and grandson of an Iwo Jima survivor, it upsets me to think of all those who have died to maintain the US's values, and integrity only so other individuals can belittle the importance. As a side note, I mentioned earlier that I realize in the grand scheme of things this may be considered trivial, but as a professional "immigration portal" what message are you sending to newly landed immigrants about respect towards our democratic system. I may not agree with everything the US or its leaders do, but the US has proven time and again she is worthy of great respect, and all of the men and women who have paid the ultimate price have ensured this.

Semper Fidelis

Editor's Note: "Supremes" is an informal, but not disrespectful, way of referring to the Justices of the US Supreme Court. To the best of our knowledge, "Supremes" is in common usage among lawyers and others who deal with the law on a daily basis, and also to the best of our knowledge, "Supremes" is not used disparagingly or disrespectfully. America does not stand on formality, and nor does the American English language.
