When people lose their humanity, the appropriate analogy is not to animals, but to diabolism. Shin Dong-hyuk, one of the few prisoners ever to have escaped from a North Korean labor camp, tells of a highlight of his captivity: “He once found three kernels of corn in a pile of cow dung, he writes. He picked them out, cleaned them off on his sleeve and ate them. ‘As miserable as it may seem, that was my lucky day.'”
Read it and weep.
Also, I note that the Castro brothers are preparing to celebrate their golden anniversary. I'd like to send them something to mark the occasion. Maybe a couple of neckties...
Try 'em on for size, boys!"
