Curtains

A tragedy in five lines.

The Lauer interview of 1932:

Lauer to Hitler: "Herr Hitler -- tell us about how much you love Blondi, your Alsatian dog. And who is the tailor for your snappy SS uniforms?"

Matt Lauer to FDR: "Mr. Roosevelt, why are you hiding the crutches and the leg braces from your dreadful polio? Are you ashamed of your terrible, disqualifying infirmity? It's not honest, you know."
