In reference to Zimmerman’s column: Tongue-in-cheek. The ultimate cynicism. These were my first thoughts. However, the article reflected accurately the thoughts of the eight relatively successful young adults who I asked to read it and share their reaction independently of the others. One added, “Hey, we don’t even have to pay for it or conserve oil”.
As one who does not support this war but who had combat service in World War II, I find this very sad.
