Risky Business


I was driving through Woodbridge today, a suburb of Toronto with a large Italian contingent. Lots of cars with Italian flags. I didn’t see any American flags. Given the news from Kaiserslautern that is probably best.

My grandmother is from Kaiserslautern. I have a cousin and his wife that live there. I have not seen them for 20 years, when they last visited us in Canada. They gave us a porcelain coaster bearing an etching of their city. They pointed out that it was an image of what the city looked like before it was levelled during the war.
