Default Re: News from Nottingham: The Schizophrenia Switch has been found

oh, wow... thank you so much for that, hee. iím only at the beginning, where heís talking about taysacs (sp?) disease among the ashkenasim being used as propaganda by medieval europeans... the idea that the jews were poisoning the wells.

that immediately set a flag off since i had already learned that medieval - renaissance folks could also be very bitter towards jews, specifically because their religion gave them a loophole amongst christian society to practice money-lending... and probably to sometimes become rather wealthy and in charge of enforcers upon late payers.

in any case, i like this a lot so far. just wish the camera wasnít recording from the side like that. oh well, lol.
