A Significant Anniversary
Hitler Boy Scout
Hey...I just wanted to give you a head's up that there's a lot to celebrate on Friday, so hold on. It will be the 65th anniversary of the death of a not-so-great humanitarian. That's right, this Friday in 1945, holed up in a bunker under his headquarters in Berlin, Adolf Hitler committed suicide by swallowing a cyanide capsule and shooting himself in the head. (Good riddance, you big baby Waa Waa! So you couldn’t face the war tribunal with your grand ideas of a 1000 year Reich. I get it.)
So this Friday evening, join me in holding high a chilled Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier (a favored German beer) or your favorite beverage, and toast to a Hitler-free Germany and to the death of one of the most despicable and diabolical SOBs ever to vomit his views and violence upon this earth. Toast also to providing enlightenment among those who have sought to emulate Der Fuhrer in like and mind. You’ve heard what has been said about history repeating itself, and there are plenty of examples around us today.
