Started a new hobby during this period. Ventriloquism! Getting pretty good, if I do say so myself!
I now challenge @SarahKSilverman and @NormOrnstein to post a picture of yourself in a mask and tag #WearADamnMask.
And thx for the challenge, @BobBalaban!
These words are inscribed on the wall at Auschwitz, where a memorial is maintained so we never forget.
Leaving most monuments in place while stating the inhumanities associated with them is a better lesson for future generations than tearing them down indiscriminately in anger.
Whatever your position on Washington and Jefferson monuments - Auschwitz is not a monument. It’s the site of a concentration camp. It has gas chambers and ovens. Obscene comparison.
