I actually do teach "The War Prayer" as we make our way through Huck Finn.
Within the first paragraph, I see many of my students making immediate
connections between the attitudes of those suporting the war within the
story and the current war with Iraq.  It's led to some great
debates/arguments and discussions of both Twain's era and our own.

I love my job.
