Dear Editor:

We heard a lot about the Titanic last week. It was a tragic accident, to be sure, but the story of the Lusitania is much more interesting, tragic and sinister, to say the least.

The sinking of this passenger ship in 1915 was one reason for America entering World War I. The details of the ship's sinking should help in understanding America's involvement in today's perpetual wars. Also, the ship's construction and destruction is something to behold. The information is out there for anyone to research, as did Colin Simpson in his book "The Lusitania."
