The newspaper needs more stories like that - ones that don't try to find a silver lining, that don't try to "on-the-other-hand" the meaning of someone's life story. I was waiting for, and thankfully never found, the line where the writer diminished Mr. Knapp's life by somehow implying that, on balance, there was any glory found in the destruction of millions of lives.

Whatever history might say about whether the was was necessary, Mr. Knapp is clear: World War II was a terrible, horrible time and he refuses to make us any feel better about it. He doesn't dwell on it, but he won't make any excuses for the hell that war ALWAYS is.


Anyway, I was thinking about what a good article that was - - until I read further down. Some hate-filled creep felt the need to spew in the comments. What kind of a loathsome excuse for a human would exploit a ninety-year-old like that?

The entire point of the article was that war is horrible, and instead this pathetic jerk uses it to indulge some violent revenge fantasies. Some people have no soul.
