    millions of individual men and women and children whose lives were taken so senselessly, must never be forgotten."

    -- Ronald Reagan

    Let me guess, Reagan was suffering the effects of Alzheimer's when he made this horrible, outrageous statement.

    All I know is if you are defending any aspect of Nazism, you are losing the debate. This is a new low for a magazine that knows a lot about low.

      George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

      The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

      His business dealings, which continued until his company's assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.
