Well, so much for the benefits of a liberal arts education. Cody Foster (“Reparations for those upon whom U.S. has trod,” March 4) blows the argument for that out of the water. If he’s the student the University of Kentucky produces, I weep for the future. Even more disturbing, it appears he will soon be in a position to spew this drivel to other impressionable minds.
I’m curious as to the dollar amount Foster thinks would satisfy this so-called debt, and whom he would call upon to assist in determining this figure. I suppose it would be him and others sitting in their ivory towers who have permeated our universities for the past 40-odd years.
He may want to consider the fact that America has saved the world twice in the past 100 years. If it wasn’t for us, he’d be speaking German, if he weren’t starved and incinerated before he learned the language. All we have asked from other countries is ground to bury our dead.
If Foster is so enamored of history, I invite him to visit Washington, D.C. and tour the Holocaust Museum. I doubt it would do any good, since his young, impressionable mind is too far gone.

America has received her invoice for these so-called reparations and it has been paid in full, with interest, and then some.
