The worms

My daughter hears anti-semitism and blissfully misinterprets it.

Andrea and I were driving the other day, and I had the excellent Radio Lab podcast about Wagner’s Ring Cycle playing in the car. If you haven’t heard it, it’s a fantastic journey into the Ring Cycle and the people who enjoy it and the reasons they do.

We’re driving along and the podcast starts talking about Wagner the person and how he had his … well, let’s call them issues. One of which was the Jews. The announcer says how Wagner left a letter which said that “Jews are worms.”

And from the backseat I hear: “When we drink juice it’s worms?”

You have thoughts? I’m @niclindh on Twitter and I want to know what you think.
