I like your idea, it makes a lot of sense. My own personal eblief, though,
is that joining the military is a choice. Things would be a lot different
if we were still drafting.

anyone wishing to run as a Republican cadtidane these days is that they be
totally delusional and out of touch with reality past and present. A sort
of leave your brain at the door policy. Kristia

I have to admit I laughed at the thgouht of our Kieran telling your
President how to sort the world out. (He would too!) As a grandmother I was
very proud of him and it is nice to feel duly justified.

For those who are unfamiliar with the historical context of this poem,
Crane released it (in a novel with a series of other "lines") in 1899 after
acting as a journalist for the Spanish-American War. Mustard gas was not
used in warfare at the time, but yellow fever was prominent. The lines
about the father who "tumbled in the yellow trenches, raged at his breast,
gulped and died" can also relate to this disease. Because some of its
symptoms include arrhythmia, or heart dysfunction, and seizures, yellow
fever could easily cause someone to "rage at his breast". Crane is renowned
for his realistic war fiction and poetry, and this satirical piece is, in
my opinion, one of his greatest.
