Letter to the editor | Lead by example

December 19, 2013 

Regarding congressional efforts to trim pay raises for military troops and retirees who are below a certain age, let me say that a worthy leader will lead by example.

Congress, as well as any well-paid government official, should set the tone for this by reducing their own pay, benefits and retirement.

Apparently, narcissism runs rampant within the Beltway.
