Prose for times

Letter to the editor

Posted: Monday, January 12, 2004

I have just found the eloquent and sensible letter from Paul Gardinier of Juneau on March 28, 2003. He deplored the waste of military spending. Down here in cold Boston (minus 12 this morning in our suburb) there is also opposition to our current mentality.

Without awareness of other similar slogans, I created a haiku last May to express today's paradigm: "Billions for smart bombs; only pennies for smart kids; nothing for health care."
