On the topic of Compulsory Displays of Mass Public Grief for Events I did not Attend and Concerning People I have not Known...
I don't feel guilty about the Holocaust, and really, I'm not losing any sleep over Slavery either.
When I said so, someone got upset. Apparently I'm a bad guy, since his grandfather was at Auschwitz.
So I said, "No kidding?! Mine too! Mine was the chap in the Canadian uniform who volunteered to be there getting shot at".
I was kind of making it up. Anyway it could have been true. I think he got my point.
