I continue to pray for those serving in our military and the families and loved ones of those that have been injured and killed. I still think that making a political statement by using the title Obama's Wars is not at all thoughtful, considerate, or appropriate on your part.

Nor do I believe that calling this Munger's List is the correct response on my part. I am just going to ask again that you consider changing the title.
