My user name for the Denver post was Alexsandra. Reds' Kins Care is the comment that I am going to analyze. He is just saing that there is no problem with using the indians names as mascotts for the football teams. He should not only talk about the football teams because I do not think that using indians names for anyrthing really matters.

The American Dream

People in the United States are always talking about the "American Dream". They talk about how they are living their American dream or what they are actually doing to reach their American dream. We should all stop and face the reality because some of us are not living the American dream and don't have enough freedom. Something that we should consider is passing the Dream Act. Undocumented students who have lived in the U.S. for a long time should be able to go to college and pay the same as legal residents. If the U.S. would give the opportunity to undocumented students to go to college, colleges would have a higher graduation rate and also more jobs would be available. By passing the Dream Act, now America would be living the American dream.

Zinsser's writing advice was very specific. He made me think of how many stuff I write down on my paper and don't even need it. He is trying to explain to the writers that they should just go straight to the point. When I was revising my paper I tried to follow his advice and I had to cut a lot of words out. I was repeating myself a lot and also using words that I did not need. Something that I learned so far is to cut down some of the words that I don't need and also to stop repeating myself. It would really help my papers be more interesting.
