To the Editor:

Must you always refer to President Bush as “Bush ’68”?

I mean, it’s bad enough that he’s going to be president for another four years without you rubbing salt into the wound by reminding us that he was admitted to Yale without any special accomplishments — not academic, athletic, musical, dramatic or anything else, other than family name and money.
