Okay, so this is not directly about Ged, but I think close enough, eh?

70 years ago the camp was freed by the Allies. 70... wow. It doesn't seen like WWII was that long ago, but I guess that is just because I grew up around those who spoke of it and thought I needed to know what happened and not go through life without knowing how horrid we humans can be to each other.

I think I shall listen to Red Sector A today.

It is depressing because you have a heart and care for others, even if they are "not like" you.

Maybe I won't duct tape you today Evil or Very Mad

Aaaaaand as I was perusing the news today, I read this

Quote:
During a committee hearing Don Young stated, “They haven’t got a damn wolf in their whole district,” Young continued. “I’d like to introduce them in your district. If I introduced them in your district, you wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore.”


I do hope this is untrue, but it looks real. The Washington Post said

Quote:
We sought clarification to ensure we heard correctly. A spokesman for Young said the “analogy was purposely hyperbolic to stress the point that these predators pose serious threats to wildlife management and their listing has damaging impacts to local communities.”


Really now? It still sounds heartless. Perhaps if I heard the exchange, but, with the way politicians play things these days, who is to say that in the moment he didn't mean it as population control?

"Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it." GREAT quote. We're at that point again today.
