    Dissention within society leads to destitution for all individuals, despite anyone’s own egotistical sense of superiority. No- one is Immune to the “wide open plains of war and foreign invaders.” On behalf of the Los Angeles Times, I find it of great necessity to discuss the common stereotypes many of you cling to. As all of you here are interns and grasp on to the innocence that makes you ignorant, I aim to position all you budding journalists to the harsh societal reality of not only what goes on in the Middle-East, but on a larger circumspect than many of you would ever attain to imagine. Materialistic symbols that separate those subordinate from those who have a key to a Lamborghini, bear no measure to common societal conflicts. Because…

In fact, Los Angeles Times also recognizes that before Proposition 227 was passed, many Spanish teachers were not trying their hardest to help children become fluent in English and were instead just letting them stay in Spanish class. This is a direct example of how test scores may have gone up, but it does not mean that we should still be confined to the…

Quoting provides decent evidence by giving direct support to the argument from other sources. Rhetorical questions work as an effective forwarding strategy, acting as transitions between one aspect of the argument and the next. Overall, Lazarus's argument was fairly effective, but focusing on…
