Okay, my Lindenwood essay is going down the tubes. I can't create an argumentive paper on it without it being ad hominem. So, I thought that maybe I could do a paper on local war protests, whether they are good are not. I mean, I know they are, and that will be the tone of the paper. But I need opposing sides, and my research on this will be mostly interviews. I bet I can interview Claire at work, husband of a Vietnam vet, and if Andy wants to, I can interview him for the against side. I promise that my questions will be fair and unbiased; I need that for a good interview anyway. I know Matt’s in for the for side, and I can probably get Weston to do it. The problem comes into what questions to ask. Bleh. My research will have to come from the blog, too, and I figured Matt could help me formulate it a bit. But the important question is—will you guys help me out on this?

Update: Claire is not the wife of a vet, but the wife of someone who was in active duty during Vietnam.
I'm still a bit sketchy on how I want to do this. Maybe get a group together at the Shmidt casa and talk about it? I could try to prepare some questions. I'm sure we could talk about it for an hour, at least, and if we have more people present at once it will be easier to bounce information off each other. Does anyone have a tape recorder?
