Editor: As Joan Rivers might say, ''Can we talk?'' Is this not what our president should say? To quote Mr. Bush, ''I want a kinder and gentler nation.''
Does he not want a kinder and gentler world? Can we talk? The international community knows we are strong without fueling our mighty war machine with political rhetoric. Can we talk? Does he not want a peaceful solution instead of blood being spilled from husbands, fathers and sons of all nations? Can we talk? Oil, egos, money, and power are not what makes us a kinder and gentler nation and world. Can we talk?
