    The unutterable ignorance and arrogance, stupid things done by stupid people for stupid reasons.

    One thing I have to hand the Nazis -- they coveted the material riches they looted, and so much was recovered in decent to excellent shape, even if it has not yet all been returned to the descendants of the rightful owners.

    I just have to click off my RAGE button, it's done and gone, and I cannot afford a broken heart about this at just this moment.
