Tragedy at Holocaust Museum--Bay Area Implications
Original post made by Paul Losch, a resident of Palo Alto, on Jun 11, 2009
We were patted down and "wanded" by plain clothes security people before we entered the museum. I was happy to cooperate, but was aksing myself "Is this necessary?
Unfortunately, I think we all learned that the answer to my question is "Yes."
Some old angry man killed a security guard at the DC museum that is a must see--the Holocaust Museum. I get to DC off and on, and this was one of the most memorable museum experiences I have had there.
I could have easily been standing in line waiting to get into the SF museum this weekend and some nut case could have pulled the same stunt.
I refuse to live my life in paranoia, but I can understand why people with a Jewish heritage in this country have to be watchful in ways that others of us don't as a consequence of what took place this week in DC.
Let alone in history...
