So You Think You Can Dance
A friend from West Virginia writes about a new dance — the Appalachian Trail Tango. You lie about which direction you’re going, and the only thing that gets hiked is a skirt. It’s danced to “Don’t cry for me, Argentina.”

Mr. Hunter’s Hunt
At first glance, I thought Mr. Hunter’s article was a satire — a hilarious joke — something like The Onion. (“The War on Neo-Nazi Terror: We must fight fascists in Europe so we don’t have to fight them here” by Jack Hunter, June 17)
I was acutely disturbed to discover that Mr. Hunter has made a serious suggestion to invade Europe. Mr. Hunter, have you been asleep the last eight years? Invading sovereign nations is against international law and has put the entire Middle East into jeopardy. The U.S.’s policy in Iraq and Afghanistan has ruined the West’s relationships with Muslim nations.
A small group of people with violent intentions are called “terrorists.” A large group of people with violent intentions are called “America.” We’re no different than the “terrorists” now, and it’s because of people like you.
