They actually read it?

This is the entire letter to the editor in the Review Journal.
President Obama and the lame duck Congress pushed the START treaty through, and we've not been told how many in Congress read the accord.

Now the treaty has won initial approval in Russia's Duma (the counterpart of our Congress), but its members pointedly say that final approval won't occur until Jan. 11 at the very earliest, because they intend to study it.

Given the tendency of Congress to pass bills lawmakers haven't read, I find the Russian Duma's attitude refreshing.

It is a shame that our legislators aren't as interested in our country as the Russian legislators are in their country.
