Ha, Ha, Hiroshima

"Anime is a prime example of why two nukes just wasn’t enough." So says State Rep. Nickolas Levasseur from my former home of New Hampshire on his FB page:

He has since apologized--by saying that the remark was "posted in jest." Funny guy.
I'm introducing myself to Nick at--
3)782-4862, --with a short reading list on Hiroshima and Nagasaki so he can bone up on his humor. Wonder if he can read.

oh, man... I so wanted to get this guy fired. How can you in your life joke over something so horrendous. Sadly, I'll bet he never gets the point. Politicians, so many times, regret not what they said, but getting caught.

So true. But it's worth your time writing him a note. If we don't try, we're just as guilty:

I am saddened to see the sharp increase in Japan bashing that I have seen and read as of late. Between CNN, Nick Levasseur, and the US governments scrutiny of Toyota one would think Japan is some rogue country that needs to be punished. Again I am saddened at how insensitive and ignorant some people can be.
