Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

Military recruiters out trying to make a killing

Recruitment Shortfalls Show This War Not Needed: "This spring, Army, Air Force and Marine recruiters came to our little town's high school on separate days to woo the 31 members of the class of 2005.

As the war we can't win drags on in Iraq, military recruiters, desperate for warm bodies to fill their quotas, are cruising schools, malls and popular hangouts all across our country for recruits. They've even driven the 52 miles down our one-lane road in search of future soldiers.

The headhunters each sat under spreading monkey pod trees, talking one-on-one with kids between their English and health classes. Good at their hard jobs, the veterans tapped into the kids' dreams of adulthood with promises of job training and education benefits. Not much was said about the 1,700 American soldiers killed so far in Iraq, or about the continued fighting there.

So far there's no word that any graduate has enlisted; I hope no one does."
