    the flow -- with the other merciful FDR acts like turning away the St. Louis filled with 900 Jews seeking asylum -- even though they could see the lights of Miami.  Like refusing to sign a bill a few weeks earlier which would have allowed 20,000 German Jewish children to immigrate because it was more than the quota.  The quality of mercy is not strained . . . and all that other shite.
