The small town of Lawton has experienced an economic downturn after a major highway was diverted to bypass it. In response to this issue, mayor of Lawton, Alexander Wiley argues in a weekly column for the local newspaper that a major attraction, in the form of a giant watermelon, needs to be built in order to reinvigorate the economy of Lawton. Her piece aims to instil her readers with enthusiasm for her proposal by focusing on what she sees as its comprehensive economic benefits which will secure the town’s future. There have been two responses to Wiley’s piece. One of them, a short letter from the President of Lawton Progress Association, Ian Warwick, attacks Wiley’s suggestion and intends to create doubt in the reader’s mind about the cultural merit of the giant watermelon. However, a cartoon supports Wiley’s vision, presenting a visually idealised portrayal of Wiley’s idea.

    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.
