If Thine Eye Offends Thee..

(Thanks for the link and title, Mathew!)

nazi chic in Asia

I continue to be bewildered by people having fun with an ideology that considered them subhuman. It is the ultimate idiocy.  The article and interviewees' focus on the Holocaust just shows how shallow their understanding of nazi ideology is.  The Thais, Javanese, Indians, etc. - none of them were considered for anything other than victimhood or slavery.  The same goes for the many Slavs who've taken up nazism.  Hitler wanted them enslaved and exterminated - it's all documented!  The suicidal ignorance of these idiots is astounding.

The Unknowns

A documentary about the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers.  Am looking forward to seeing this when it's completed.  Arlington is one of the three top places that I always recommend to visitors to DC. 

Happy Birthday Bobby Hart!
