In other news, Hitler's grandson becomes topic of polite conversation by announcing his plans to enter politics. Strike that. I meant Mao Zedong's grandson becomes a minor blip* in the media and a topic of polite conversation by announcing his intentions to enter into politics. Because Evil is Defined as Hitler and the Nazis murdered six million Jews; all other events are subject to academic debate.
*Note in the story of Mao's grandson. The ridicule is over his appearance and achievements, not over his relation to history's #1 Mass Murderer. Place this in juxtaposition to the Today show's curiosity regarding how Nixon's grandson can possibly overcome his ties to grandfather Richard, and it isn't difficult to see symptoms of the Great Western Guilt in action, which helps us ignore things like China's growing power in the world. Remember, confession is good. Suicidal, unforgivable guilt is bad.
