This letter arrived this afternoon:

Dear Letters Editor:

I have been spending a great deal of time studying American history since my stroke. I came up with a question I couldn't answer; and I am wondering what others will think.

What if the "Pilgrims" were Muslim instead of Christian?

What would this wonderful country be like?

I don't have an answer.

Larry J. Kluth (Lt.Col.USAF Ret)

Clearly, this man demands a Slog poll.
