And speaking of insane people: beneath the article announcing Rose Sherman's release from Eloise is a short blurb about Russian dancer Vaslav Nijinisky breaking a 26 year silence due to his own insanity. Having not spoken for the entirety of that duration he broke into laughter, talking and of course, dancing at the sight of Red Army troops in Vienna, where he was apparently living. Meanwhile, their so-called comrade saviors reveling in the fall of evil Hitler and Germany were busy raping Auschwitz survivors. Goddamn their eyes!
Reports of nearly 1 million female holocaust survivors having been raped and twice that many German women violated by Russian troops, not to mention the wave of sexual assault on their march across Europe, was more a cause to mass insanity than the war itself but I'm jumping way off course here.
