I'd say the same thing about Germany and my ancestors, too, only mine were, you know, Jews, so I'm kinda glad they relocated. I loved my trip there, too--such beauty and order and amazing cities--but I confess to feeling a bit uneasy the entire time. FWIW.

To completely change the subject, congratu-f**king-lations! And boy, howdy--now we know that Dave Greten sure can keep a secret!

Hey Communicatrix,
What you say is very true and I'll agree it was a wise migration. I suppose my ancestors' migration was a good idea too considering they didn't have to endure the war and their hands were not marked with the stain of genocide. Thank God.

Did you ever read "The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay"? That book gave me a lot of insight into how Jews had to deal with anti-Semitism during the 30s and 40s. A real eye-opener.


That made me laugh out loud and thank you :-)

Funny you should mention K+C--I'm reading it now. Or I should say, I'm reading it while I'm at The BF's. I keep a stack of books at both pads and dammit, this cold has kept me from finishing a truly spectacular novel. That Mike Chabon sure can write, can't he?

He's one of those guys (him and Eggers) who write so well it sometimes makes me angry. Envy is a horrible, horrible thing.
