Mrs. Dog is acting in a theater production of The Diary of Anne Frank right now. Went to see it last night. It’s a good production, Mrs. Dog is, as always, a stellar actor, and the show is, despite its tiny handful of faults, moving and frightening.
Lately, I have been thinking about the Nazis more than is probably healthy for a young man like myself. I watched The Pianist some months ago, and a friend recently watched Triumph of the Will. Whoops, wrong photo…
I can’t watch the Nazis, or think about the Nazis and the rounding up of the Jews in Warsaw and Utrecht without running a mental inventory of the guns in my gunsafe and ammo in my closet. Watching Anne Frank, I found myself wondering what would have happened if the Jews of Warsaw had been as heavily armed as I am.
I may be a leftist and an environmentalist and an advocate for a safer and saner society, but I am not a fool.
Moveon.org might need to throw it in reverse when someone makes the Bushista/Nazi comparison, but I feel no such compunction. These people scare me. Tomorrow I will be at the Gun Store™ buying a case of .308. If nothing else, milk jugs will quake at the mention of my name for years to come.
