To The Editor:

Thanks to Mason Wade we were regaled with some statistics about what military recruiters are doing with reference to sexual assaults and harassment. I do have to remind you our military recruiters do come from our very own "intelligent" society and although this statistic is dated it identifies what our "intelligent" society is capable of. "In the United States, approximately 78 rapes occur each hour, 1,872 rapes each day and 683,280 each year."(National Center for Victims of Crime, 1992)
