Roger Terry (Readers' Forum, Sept. 24) displays total ignorance with regard to Sen. John McCain's education at the U.S. Naval Academy. The academy provides a sound academic education, leadership from the front and the practices of an honorable life. Obama's education at Harvard apparently didn't provide him with the good sense to reject the companionship and teachings of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright for 20 years, nor the friendship of unrepentant Pentagon bomber William Ayers. With voters such as Mr. Terry, we can't get there from here.
