Prince George: ASININE tag because subby thinks history is unimportant?

Maybe subby is aware of the Daily Fail's long history of celebrating Nazis.

Gather round while I sing you of Wernher von Braun,
A man whose allegiance
Is ruled by expedience.
Call him a Nazi, he won't even frown.
"Ha, Nazi Schmazi," says Wernher von Braun.

Don't say that he's hypocritical,
Say rather that he's apolitical.

"Once the rockets are up, who cares where they come down?
That's not my department," says Wernher von Braun.

Some have harsh words for this man of renown,
But some think our attitude
Should be one of gratitude,
Like the widows and cripples in old London town
Who owe their large pensions to Wernher von Braun.

You too may be a big hero,
Once you've learned to count backwards to zero.
"In German oder English I know how to count down,
Und I'm learning Chinese," says Wernher von Braun.

It's been a prevalent notion. Fallen sparks. Fragments of vessels broken at the Creation. And someday, somehow, before the end, a gathering back to home. A messenger from the Kingdom, arriving at the last moment. But I tell you there is no such message, no such Home, only the millions of last moments ... no more. Our history is an aggregate of last moments.

ZAZ: Sybarite

Churchill is also rumored to have sacrificed Coventry early in the war to protect intelligence sources.

Turns out there's no evidence to corroborate that story at all. The enigma decodes took so long it was always touch and go whether the information could be acted on in time. And for what it's worth, I simply cannot believe that Churchill would have come to that decision, given the choice. The loss of life, the loss of Coventry's manufacturing capability and the blow to morale would not have been worth it.
