After the war I wanted to remain illiterate. I had thought that education was meant to elevate man. But the SS were highly educated, and the atom bomb was the fruit of education. I thought, who wants this education? To this day I cannot read or write. I’m not proud of it, but I’m not ashamed.

Hey there, former host of Double Dare, Marc Summers. I don’t care that you probably changed your last name to avoid its over-arching Jew-ness. I’m just happy that you and I share that last name and I can now mention you as one of my forebears instead of the Son of Sam killer, who made life very difficult for me when that Spike Lee movie that nobody saw BUT EVERYONE WAS AWARE OF came out freshman year. I love you, Marc Summers Berkowitz!
