  •  Because American kids were scared (0+ / 0-)

    It was my way, at least, of saying that I still cared about the kids getting sent into that idiotic war.  I agree, 10 years later, it seems ludicrous, but I was a fierce critic of the war (as you see in that email) and I still wrote it, so I don't think the two impulses are incompatible.  But it does speak to the level of propaganda at the time.
