Cassie Morgan College Writing: LIT-100-047 Professor Warfield 29 October 2007 Short Response to Where Have All the Criminals Gone? Levitt and Dubner are very careful about the views that their audience may have towards abortion. No one has the same opinion about any single topic. They are even courteous enough to put a little disclaimer in the third to last paragraph warning their readers to skip ahead if they feel strongly about the topic of abortion. “If you identify with either person number one or person number two, the following exercise might strike you as offensive, and you may want to skip this paragraph and the next.” - Levitt and Dubner pg. 144 When analyzing the piece by Levitt and Dubner, I could not find one single defining theory as to why the crime rate dropped. Rather, it seemed to be combination of several theories to explain why the crime rate dropped. They agree with many of the theories, but they point out the flaws in each theory to argue that no one theory can explain the fall of the crime rate in the 1990’s.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
