Would you like to financially contribute to the upkeep of RODOH, kindly contact Scott Smith. All contributions are welcome!
As the words to my football team's anthem goes " Keep Right on to the End of Road ".
Hope you just do that, mate.
I am humbled, many thanks for the very kind remarks. And yes, Scott, we have lost a few over the years, but, the ‘replacements’ are top notch.
Please carry on the good fight.
I'll remember you as a worthy opponent.
May you pass over without suffering into the realm of eternal peace.
~ A German jurist by the name of Baumann in the German juridical magazine NJW, quoted in: Bailer-Galanda/Benz/Neugebauer (ed.), Die Auschwitzleugner, Berlin 1996, page 261 (my translation).Denial of generally known historical facts should not be punishable. For those who maintain, for instance, that Germany did not take part in World War I or that Adenauer fought at Issus in 333, their own stupidity is punishment enough. The same should apply to the denial of the horrors and crimes of the recent German past.
Looks like we won't get to meet up for that pint then. Not this time around anyway buddy. But I will at least raise a toast you next time I go for a drink.
My best regards to you, your wife, your family and close friends. You'll be in people's thoughts for a long time Wilf. And you know what those Mexicans believe: you're never really gone when there's people who remember you.

In a fringe debate dominated by aggressive maddies on both sides, yours was a rare courteous and scholarly voice cutting unperturbed through the din.
I was always disappointed I could never convert to the School of Bakeries, a school that only made one convert, Shyster. And in all honesty he was probably only playing some game a way above my pay grade.
All of us who become aware of how nutty our recent history is are a little bit like those early Christians eagerly expecting the 2nd coming in a year or to. Or maybe like those Eastern European Jews saying: "Next year, Jerusalem." But deep down we realize this oddball situation will probably out-live all of us.
This is what I always return to
Magna Est Veritas
Here, in this little Bay,
Full of tumultuous life and great repose,
Where, twice a day,
The purposeless, glad ocean comes and goes,
Under high cliffs, and far from the huge town,
I sit me down.
For want of me the world's course will not fail:
When all its work is done, the lie shall rot;
The truth is great, and shall prevail,
When none cares whether it prevail or not.
The Little Grey Rabbit
