I was thinking about that yesterday. Would you want to be a bus driver in Israel? I know they have a few openings.

Most Americans have read the book or seen the movie version, deeply moved by the real life drama it claims to present. But have we been misled in the belief that Anne Frank actually wrote this diary? And if so, should an author be permitted to produce a work of fiction and sell it to the world as fact, particularly one of such tremendous emotional appeal? Myths Die Hard More than five years ago the Swedish journal Fria Ord published two articles commenting on The Diary Of Anne Frank. A condensation of these articles appeared in the April 15, 1959 issue of Economic Council Letter, as follows: History has many examples of myths that live a longer and richer life than truth, and may become more effective than truth. The Western World has for some years been made aware of a Jewish girl through the medium of what purports to be her personally written story, "Anne Frank's Diary." Any informed literary inspection of this book would have shown it to have been impossible as the work of a teenager. A noteworthy decision of the New York Supreme Court confirms this point of view, in that the well known American Jewish writer, Meyer Levin, has been awarded $50,000 to be paid him by the father of Anne Frank as an honorarium for Levin's work on the "Anne Frank Diary." Mr. Frank, in Switzerland, has promised to pay to his race-kin, Meyer Levin, not less than $50,000 because he had used the dialogue of Author Levin just as it was and "implanted" it in the diary as being his daughter's intellectual work.

The words "race-kin" in the "myths die hard" section raise my hackles. Sounds like the sort of thing a pseudo-intellectual racist, or more precisely, a racist trying to sound intellectual, might say. Because of that, I completely discount the information presented as corrupted by it's presenter. I can't stand racists, they are no better than the asshole terrorists in Hamas, Al Queda, Taliban, the Islamic Revolutionary Army, or whoever else.

Then why don't they just "get it on" and have it out? Think we can convince the other idiot states in the area to keep their nose out??
