Statistics typically grab an audiences or readers attention. In “March to Conquer Cancer” Vice President Gore states the statistic “In America today, more than 40 percent of us will be diagnosed with cancer, and 20 percent of us will die from it” (Gore).

It wasn’t until 1796, when Edward Jenner, a English paleontologist came up with a new form of vaccine, it was called inoculation. The disease decimated the local population and was one of the main reasons for the fall of the Aztec and Inca empires.
It was an attempt of the Khmer Rouge to nationalize and centralize the peasant farming society of Cambodia virtually overnight, in accordance with the Chinese Communist agricultural model. Other groups targeted for extermination by the Khmer Rouge were ethnic minorities like Vietnamese nationals, and the Cham people who are Muslim. The regime also pursued any perceived political enemies. For another decade, the Khmer Rouge fought the Vietnam-backed government with support from China and the Soviet Union. The violence and instability of this period result in the deaths of thousands of Cambodians, as well as a large influx of hundreds of thousands refugees into Thailand, still traumatized by their experiences under the Khmer Rouge and in search of food, medical care, and security.

Consequently though, when El Patrón dies, it was a shock that he had poisoned the wine that the recipients drank at his wake. When El Patrón does this action, he took everyone by surprise. No guest at his burial tomb never even considered that El Patrón would kill his own bloodline. This can all be identified on page 375 when the text states, “Everyone cheered and then drank [wine] --except me.

Stop Burning the American Flag! Ronald Reagan once said, “When we honor our flag we honor what we stand for as a Nation - freedom, equality, justice, and hope.” The Texas v. Johnson case is a vast problem that seems to be overpowering in today’s society. Since the case began there have been flag burnings all over the country, and no one seems to be concerned since people are not getting disciplined. People should not be burning the flag that so many people fight and lost their lives for. The burning of the American flag should not be protected by the First Amendment.

It’s December 19th, 1998 and the trial for the impeachment of President Clinton is about to take place.
