You cheated on your book reports, didn't you?

Once a nun in Catholic school asked if I had read my bible. I told her I was waiting for the movie. She was not amused.

It is rather dry once you start but once Hitler starts rising to power you get a good idea of how whacked he was.

Back decades ago when getting my political education, I read MK/CM/RF3R/ and also the Constitution of the USA, and most documents of the founders....

I read this because it was of interest to me, sprung at a rather early age because of where I lived and some family dealings....which maybe were posted here or not.....

One thing that stood out, was how hitler basically erased his history from the files .....much like NObam today.....

Another thing, I refuse to use a cap letter in front of names like hitler/mao/etc.....because I was taught it was a letter of respect for an individual back 1/2 a century ago, so just WTF is there to respect about hitler/etc???

I thought it was just because you were a fan of e.e cummings.

This could explain why your screen name is all lower case also?

Nietzsche. Much more intelligent. And far less violent.

Someone should have killed the fuk just for that book.
, although hard to read, I believe everyone should muddle throught it once.
I instructed an in-service class on diversity one year and got copies of this and several other controversial books (Turner diaries, for one) for the class. When I asked over the phone about them being in stock, I was hung up on. Going there in person got me the evil eye and a curt "we don't stock those books, it will have to be special ordered",In the end I had to go online to get these books.

If you "outlaw" a book because the subject matter is offensive to some, you are on as slippery slope.

Funny, but it's been SO long ago I can't remember the site, program, ISP or whatever but when signing on to some car/vette group, it only accepted lower case letters....so I got used to it and left it that way.....

I see many others use lower case in their handles too....old habits???
