Letter to the Editor
Saturday, July 13, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Rioting, murder, mayhem, armed rebels, unarmed protesters, suicide bombers, bikers with knives — the stories emanating from the Mideast have assumed a sameness that threatens to inure all of us to the violence and pain that human beings can inflict upon one another.

Secretary of State John Kerry is “working hard” to bring some peace to this land of turmoil. But the answer to solving these problems has been right in front of us all along.

Let's send every disc jockey from America to the Mideast and equip each with the latest electronics and stereo gear. Can you imagine the Muslim Brotherhood's reaction to hearing the Village People's rendition of “YMCA” played over and over and over?

I believe by the time “Brick House” has assaulted their ears countless times, they will be ready to lay down their arms and defuse their bombs.

Just a thought!
