What's the word?


Re: "Hitler was a patriot - and so was Gandhi", Letters, July 31.

It is interesting to learn from Eric Bahrt that Hitler was a patriot by definition. What is an antonym for “patriot”? Traitor! Kim Philby, a British agent spying for Russia, distinguished the word best by saying he was not a traitor because in his mind he never belonged to Britain. 
Winston Churchill used to say that English is the most beautiful language in the world. So said former chairman of the US Fed Alan Greenspan after his clouded reply to a question from Congress requiring a direct answer.
