Barbara Comstock, a Republican congressional candidate from Northern Virginia, has an antidote for the do-nothing Congress: She wants to reinvent the very nature of legislation.

Her proposal to introduce a bill recommending that more states adopt Virginia’s position on the Sea of Japan-East Sea controversy is brilliant [“Comstock courts Korean Americans via a sea change,” Metro, Aug. 17]. Congress can do something and do nothing at the same time. Is it up to the challenge?
