Swanson Ponders What Milk Truck Drivers Would Do (But Still Doesn't Address the Question)

RECEIVED Fri., March 4, 2005

Dear Editor,
    Not sure how to make this clear, but to suggest that the only reason we went to war in Iraq was to kill people, spend money, and hold free elections is ridiculous; how should someone answer [“Postmarks,” March 4]? The fact remains that President Bush clearly stated the reasons for the war, several times; the idea of answering hypotheticals seems a little strange. I can't answer a hypothetical; not even the brilliant editor of this paper can. Or maybe he can. What do you think milk truck drivers would do if cows could fly? Let's see.
