Before you read my eloquent letter...

Allow me to explain that it was taken from a completely different angle than my position paper in an attempt to broaden the issue. I chose to make a case, not against WMDs or America's use of them in WWII, but against a public figure that fails to understand the terror of the atomic bomb and the history of WMDs and their use.

The object of my reproof? Former US Senator John Edwards. Senator Edwards's decrying of the War on Terror as a "bumper sticker" a few weeks back made him the most logical target of a letter geared to someone who doesn't seem to have a sense of history.

I really don't have any desire to pick on the Senator, but a letter of this type requires a targeted audience.

This piece received a 99% final grade for its content, language, grammar, and flow. The one point I lost was from the logic section of the grading rubric. It basically came down to my use of Saddam Hussein as an example of a modern-day threat. I'll let you all judge for yourselves before I go into that argument.

As usual, please don't steal this. I would hate to have you flunk just because I posted this on the web.
