The Associated Press informs us (link) that the private company kidthing.com (background here) - in conjunction with the National Education Association - has compiled a free e-Book (to be released Monday) containing 150 letters from children to our leader Barack Obama:
End war, forever. Make the planet greener. Please help my dad find work. Make it rain candy! ..."I hope that we will have no war ever again. I mean why are we fighting why can't we all be friends." ..."I would appreciate it if you would try to make this a greener planet and try to bring home the troops and end the war... I am very luckey because I am not part of a military family, but it saddens me to hear about all the people who die in Iraque and know that somewhere In the world people are greiving over a lost family member."
Whether the last was indeed written by a 10-year-old or by her "liberal" parents isn't known; the misspellings don't necessarily indicate it had to come from a child. Noting other similiarities between the letters from children and the thoughts of MoveOn members might left as an exercise, but overall I'd suggest not giving kidthing the attention they crave.
