About Me

My photo
Forest, Virginia, United States
A long time ago, my sophomore English teacher, Father William Campbell, saw something in my writing and predicted that I would someday become a newspaper columnist. He suggested the perfect title for my column--"Leaves of the Palm." Now that I have a little extra time on my hands I've decided to put Father Campbell's prediction to the test. I'm going to start using this blog site not just to reprint opinion pieces I've published elsewhere but to try to get more of my ideas and opinions out there. Feedback is welcome. To find out more about me, please check out my Web site: www.EdwardFPalm.com (Click on any of the photos below for an enlarged view.)

Kristallnacht Revisited

[The handiwork of some others committed to uncivil discourse, the burned out center of the ROTC building, University of California Berkeley, February, 1985.]
According to a letter in today's Kitsap Sun, an Alabama militiaman is calling for the smashing of Democratic windows, and obviously, some are heeding his call. I wonder if the word "Kristallnacht" means anything to these people as well as to all the people who are styling Obama and his supporters as Nazis?  Somehow, I don't think that those of us who support the new health care legislation are on the wrong side of history.--EFP
