    I live in Springfield, MO where the Jewish community is tiny.

    In fact, it was so far under the radar that the presence of Jews since the 1890's has never resulted in much antisemitism. It was like they were so invisible, the bigots forgot to hate on them.  During the heyday of the Ku Klux Klan in Springfield, Jews were initially welcomed as members by Klansman who didn't know they were supposed to hate more than just black people.

    It's almost inconceivable.

    Harboring resentment is like drinking poison and expecting someone else to die.
