GUEST EDITORIAL COFFEE CUP SALUTE FROM PRESIDENT LEAVES A BAD TASTE by Sal Giarratani There's an old Chinese proverb about a picture being worth a thousand words and recently our president showed how true that proverb can be. A military salute is a gesture signaling respect and is steeped in mili- tary tradition going back to the Knights of Camelot. A salute from the Marines as he exits Marine One is a sign of respect for the Office of President of the U.S.A. Last week Obama stepped into it again when debark- ing Marine One in New York on his way into the United Nations to deliver a speech. At the foot of the copter's Stairs the Marine sergeant and corporal offered snappy salutes and there in the photo for all to see is the President's "whatever" response. He is holding a styrofoam cup filled with coffee in his right hand giving an at best *^# salute. Better not to salute at all if you are going to keep the cup in your saluting hand. This shows great disrespect and of course the "coffee cup" salute tweet went viral in a bad way. President Ronald Reagan started this tradition of the president returning a salute. Since i981, Presidents salute back as an act of respect for receiving a salute. Honor and tradition are important symbols and are part of tradition thanks to Reagan.
