Thanks for running Nancy Cramer’s essay on her “tourist” trip to Iran (6/7, Opinion, “A breathtaking journey to Iran”). Forget that Iran is now refining nuclear materials for many bombs and has threatened to make Israel extinct. Forget that Iran is helping to kill U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
Let’s go happily to Iran, eat the food and buy tourist trinkets. And, most important, let’s blame the U.S. and the Bush administration for everything.
I’m glad Nancy Cramer is retired from elementary school teaching. Future students will not be exposed to the ignorance she’s peddling.
