A recent letter to the editor, Re: "White House invite," left the unfortunate impression that we showed special treatment to the Atlanta Braves while overlooking the Warner Robins American Little League championship team. We want to underscore to the people of Middle Georgia our strong support for the Warner Robins American Little League team. The tremendous talent that led this team to grasp the title of 2007 Little League World Champions was a great accomplishment and fine display of sportsmanship and determination.
It is for this very reason we were proud to offer a resolution that unanimously passed the U.S. Senate on September 5, commending these heroes, their coaches and parents for their hard work. Last year, after the Columbus Northern Little League team won the series, Sen. Isakson and I arranged a meeting with President Bush to congratulate the team. This year, we have made the same request to the White House on behalf of the Warner Robins team. These young men are not only Georgia heroes, they are the nation's heroes and they indeed deserve presidential recognition.
Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson

Pandering? Hell no.
Saw this letter to the editor in yesterday's Telegraph. For the record, the word "heroes" appears three times.
