Sen. Kerry is right

Editor:The national press coverage regarding Senator John Kerry’s remarks to students about staying in school to avoid ending up Iraq is totally overblown. As every college-aged person knows, when you leave high school you have basically three paths to choose from: college, joining the work force or joining the military.Since joining the work force leaves little room for success, as everyone knows, the most logical choices left are college or the armed services–which many go into in hopes of seeking a college degree and other financial incentives that are offered by the military. It is true what Sen. Kerry said–the only way to escape from a low-paying job or expensive student loans is the military; the split between the wealthy and poor has reached an enormous gap, and that is a fact of life in America.
