Subject: RE: What's wrong with this song?
Dear Texas Guest,

   What is wrong with your song is eral and historical. Had you the good sense to have lived sixty or seventy years ago, your little ditty would have been as popular as "'Round and Around Hitler's Grave" or my favorite, "Hitler Has Only Got One Ball".
You're going to think I'm making this up but, once upon a time, Americans supported wars and hated the enemy. It was, once, perfectly appropriate to refer to Krauts, Heinies and Nips. (If I'm lyin', I'm dyin')
Your song reflects the anger and fear that were caused by the 9/11 attacks and the reaction you have received is from an aura of political correctness and dispassion. Oh, I guess that your detracters are right about lumping all Arabs in with the fanatics who killed without caring who they were killing. They may be more rational than you about seeing the crowds in Palestine, Iran, Pakistan and Iraq, cheering the deaths of the people trapped in those buildings and the deaths of the brave souls who tried to save them. There are more than a few folks, reading this message, who think that America got what it deserved. Well, maybe, they are right, too. I don't see it that way and nether do you but, hey, we've been wrong before.
