    The entire world waits for Hitlers reappearance, or his reincarnation, with their heads and necks turned to the political right waiting for some hint, sight, or sign of his appearance, mustachioed, jack booted, military uniformed, right hand outstretched and upraised in stiff salute, marching goosestepped in front of a faceless army of his followers.
    But Al Pacino's character in the "Devil's Advocate" reminds his understudy to "Never let them see you coming!". How much better, and far more deceptive, would it be to appear as a thoughtful, scholarly man of color, instead of some sopped, sudsy beer hall brawler, the head of the political party that was Hitler's arch nemesis during the time he wanted to subjugate the entire world, benighted before even taking office the badge of peace, bearing all the trappings of a benevolent master with the chains cleverly disguised and hidden.

    For Germany, Iraq, and Libya none of these men will be forgotten. It is only our parochial teaching and reading of history that causes us to forget.

    Those who hate him will keep him in the minds of people forever. They have to.
