My son is a Midshipman at the United States Naval Academy. He has studied, admires, and respects the achievements of Admiral Nelson. The idea that the people of the U.K. not only don't celebrate this but, haven't even been educated on these achievements, is disgusting and terribly troublesome.

The PC approach to commemorating Lord Nelson's victory is a travesty. I have stood at the foot of Nelson's column in Trafalgar Square and admired the four massive lions guarding it. The sensativity towards the French and Spanish accomplishes nothing except cheapening the courage and memory of the Royal Navy, and by extension, England herself.
