Example text

There was involved, beyond an old American metaphor for spies, a wish to believe that the enemy is subhuman, a n animal to exterminate rather than a m a n to confront. " Yet we have n o right to let ourselves be provoked into answering the Communists J with equivalent strategies; differently from them, we still have much to lose; and in trying to dehumanize our opponents we may end by dehumanizing ourselves. When the news of the Rosenbergs' long-delayed execution was announced before the White House, the counter-pickets cheered.

A n d the matzos are called azzime, and they, too, are different in texture and shape from what we are used to. ) turns out to be the customary vino bianco from Frascati, not the syrupy red stuff to which the children have been looking forward. But later we are all relieved a n d happy, balancing the awkward packages in our arms; we smile with a new and perilous sense of having found a community as we pass others carrying similar packages.
