about President Obama visiting Buchenwald, and it's sub-camps, and I noticed that he was touring the camp with his hands in his pockets, and I must admit, that incensed me. To me, all the Concentration Camps are sacred, and should be treated with the utmost respect and dignity befitting those souls who perished there. The way Obama was walking through it, you would have thought he was viewing a garden at a Garden Party.
If it seems like I am nitpicking, so be it, I really don't care. What I do care about is that proper decorum be observed, and walking around a Concentration Camp with your hands in your pockets certainly isn't proper decorum in my view.
