To Ease Soviet Dissolution, American States Could 'Adopt'
RepublicsAfter dedicating the lives of our young men (and no small part of our national treasury, as well) to fighting communist expansion in far-off countries for the last four decades, we now stand poised at an opportunity to show the world what Americans are really all about. To ease the problems facing our non-communist friends, I suggest we have every state governor "adopt" a former Soviet republic. We can work to build private and public aid packages and develop business relationships that will be mutually beneficial. Indeed, with shirt sleeves rolled up, we may just surprise ourselves with how much we really can do! An opportunity to enhance our own security and help others gain true freedom is too good to pass up. Daryl L. Bell-Greenstreet, Tucson, Ariz.
