What type of introduction does the writer use?
We've been hearing an awful lot about retarded people lately. More precisely, we've been hearing about a certain subset of mentally retarded people who live on death row. The recent interest in the fate of mentally retarded convicts has launched a bevy of headlines like this from the New York Times in June: "Jeb Bush Signs Bill Barring Executing the Retarded." On television, we've heard Ed Bradley, filling in for Dan Rather on the CBS Evening News earlier this month, refer to "retarded killer Johnny Penry" and "retarded criminals."
Please understand that no one here will do your work for you. However, we will be happy to read over whatever you come up with and make suggestions and/or corrections.
