Found this letter to the editor in the November 4th Daily Iowan.... it's a nice one!

Bush supporters: Offer your service

To all those healthy 18- to 24-year-olds who voted for President Bush,
presumably you support both his domestic and foreign policies. So as the war
in Iraq worsens, and as your tuition goes up, why not demonstrate your
patriotic consciences and sign up for military service now? Your country
needs you!

Although I voted for John Kerry, it is unlikely that I will be hurt by
anything done by Bush or the new Republican Congress. I'm too old to be
drafted, I've already got my Ph.D., and I could get a high-paying job in
biotech or pharmacy in a heartbeat. Good luck, kids.
