Ongoing gratitude for being in America. So, it’s Monday night at the Loews Del Coronado Beach resort in San Diego. My driver, Robert David, a super nice man whose family largely perished under horrible circumstances in the Holocaust, has driven me down here. I twisted my back while turning to watch FB and also Jimmy Kimmel two nights ago, so I have my pal and fellow scribe, Judah Friedman, keeping me company and helping me with my briefcase.
My room has a breathtaking view out over the San Diego Bay and I can see moonlight and palms. The furniture is bright and cheery and the evening is serene, with me all by myself with my TV.
That’s where the problem came in. On TV, on the Military History Channel, there was a gruesome tale (perhaps a repeat) of the slaughter in Poland after the Nazi and Russian occupation of 1939. With grainy and also recreations on high definition film, there are images of Polish officers under interrogation by the NKVD to see if they will be collaborators with the Russians.
If they won’t, they are taken off to cells and forests and swamp lands to be summarily executed by a man or men in leather aprons with immense Soviet era revolvers.
