Letters to the Ethical Spectacle
Spectacle Letters Column Guidelines. If you write to me about something you read in the
Spectacle, I will assume the letter is for publication. If it is not, please tell me, and I will
respect that. If you want the letter published, but without your name attached, I will do so. I will not include
your email address unless you ask me to. This is in response to many of you who have expressed concern that
spammers are finding your email address here. Flames are an exception. They will be published
in full, with name and email address. I have actually had people follow up on a published flame by
complaining that they thought they were insulting my ancestry privately. Nope, sorry.
Dear Mr. Wallace:
Thank you for this brilliant compilation, An Auschwitz Alphabet.
I am using it to research a family letter that has recently surfaced.
V. best wishes to you,
Mr. Wallace, i came upon your website when i was doing looking up facts for a
research paper i am writing for my Junior english class. Your site was more than helpful and opened my eyes to
the inhumane and disgusting realities about the Holocaust, mainly Auschwitz.
Thank you very much for your helpful facts and knowledge about this topic.
Dear Mr. Wallace:
You came up on a Google search on a thought I've been having for the past
month and you know film history.
Aren't there a couple of films -- ancient? recent? -- where the theme was the
"black guy saving a bunch of helpless / hopeless whites" after they'd gotten
themselves into a pickle, tried everything they could think of while totally
ignoring and dissing him, and then throwing it all on him to "solve"?
The Obama ascendancy to the Presidency just feels like a theme I've heard before.
Was it a part of Jim's role in Huck Finn?
