Irene Sendler

I got a kind of strange forwarded email yesterday which called An Inconvenient Truth Al Gore's "slide show" on global warming...

Thinking it was anti-global warming activists (they are the best...such relativists in their doubting of science), I scrolled down and found it to actually be about this female Oskar Schindler, who I had never heard of. Turns out, it's legit. (The email writers were mad that she lost the bid for the Nobel Peace Prize to Gore...didn't realize Nobel Peace Prize candidate supporters were such sore losers).

Anyway, this lady smuggled out hundreds of babies in handbags, and thousands more through other means, from the Warsaw Ghetto. Pretty amazing.

She died last year at 98.

But really, supporters of Irene Sendler probably shouldn't hate on Gore...seriously, why don't they hate on Schindler or something, he was part of the problem before being part of the solution and they made a movie ABOUT him. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before Irene gets her own biopic (starring Angelina Jolie), but even then she'll still be called the "female Oskar Schindler" for time eternity.

Kinda like this French Anne Frank.
