Subject: RE: BS: Anybody watching 'The Roosevelts' on PBS
Before last night's episode, I really didn't realize what powerful enemies FDR had. It is a great wonder he was not assassinated.

Incidentally, in defense of the Amish I should stipulate that I know of no Amish who were for Germany in the war, even though their roots are largely German. America, to them, was/is the shining beacon on a hill. I remember my own parents were wary of a lone nationalist German in our little town, thinking he might be a spy. The poor man became a veritable pariah in the community notwithstanding his many years in this country.
