  •  Verdun and Douaumont (10+ / 0-)

    Were among the most sobering sights I've ever seen. Everyone who's urging that a war be started, with anyone, anywhere, should visit there first. Thanks for the tour, MK.

    We also visited monument on a hill, whose name I cannot remember, where so much lead had been pumped into the ground that 70 years later, nothing grew there. And this was on some farmer's land, whom we greeted at his work as we went by. To see him, you'd have thought there'd never been an unpeaceful day there.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
