Deadly 'Defense'

Letter to the Editors

Regarding Jim Rice’s column “Fairness for Whom?” (June 2012): One of Martin Luther King Jr.’s prophecies fits the effects of today’s right-wing political agenda with uncanny accuracy: “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”
