rhetorical analysis and summary

In two short paragraphs, conduct a rhetorical summary and analysis of the text.  In a brief first paragraph, briefly summarize the main points and argument of the text selection.

In the second paragraph, analyze the rhetorical effectiveness of the text.  Did you find the text persuasive?  Why or why not?  What were the main ethos, pathos, and logos appeals?  What did you feel was the intended audience of the text?  Did you find the style appealing or unappealing?  What kind of tone was the author using?
