Prince Harry

Old news now, Harry's lamentable choice of costume at fancy dress. I do, however, have one observation. When the reports bothered to mention it, Harry was supposed to be Erwin Rommel. One wonders if there would have been any reaction if he hadn't worn the armband?

OK, I lie, a second observation. How does banning the Swastika preciely make us a freer country/continent? Oh, and what are you going to do with all those swastikas put in churches and whatnot in the Middle Ages and whatnot? Oh, and what about historical dramas? Or artistry where the depiction of the swastika has great potential to represent the sinister and oppressive?

One has also to wonder about the hysteria. It rings to me incredibly hollow. The papers do protest too much. I doubt many editors or columnists out there actually care one whit.
