    (A thought just struck me. Seventy years from now, some people every now and again will be discovering old blog posts which were written around now. So you will end up with people posting comments on 70 year old posts. This is obviously trivially true, but it just seems weird to me)

    At last he can get out and engage in physical activity building for the hoped-for future where a bit of rain is all he has to worry about.

    Yes. This is why my comments are always well thought out before I submit them.
    Meanwhile, a bomb, concealed in a supporting pillar, explodes in the Burgerbraukeller in Munich (the famous beer hall of the 1923 Nazi putsch), 20 minutes after Hitler leaves, upon the conclusion of a vehement anti-British speech predicting a five year war. Eight persons are killed. The bomb is rumored to have been planted by the Nazis as an excuse for measures against what remains of the German opposition and as anti-British propaganda.

    And, Hans Frank, Governor of the General Government, in that part of former Poland occupied by the Germans but not annexed, consolidates plans to transport 600,000 Jews and 400,000 Poles from the incorporated territories in the General Government. The operation is to begin December 1st.

    Tom, JL3 – bet someone someday writes a thesis on early 21st century blogs, so keep polishing your contributions – you’ll be quoted.

  8. Fay Shirley says:

    And thanks, JL3, for the historical notes – it keeps it all so real.

    I was in Berlin earlier this week, and our taxi driver pointed out the building where the bomb went off. A real building, even now.
