[Re: Hot Type, February 14]

Perhaps Barbara Amiel of the Sun-Times, who wrote that Madeleine Albright had only to look in the mirror to know she was Jewish, needs to be told that one's religion simply cannot be discerned from facial features. However, with that kind of "harmless blather," as you term her anti-Semitism cloaked in pseudo-logic, Amiel would have made a good Nazi. Oh, right, she's Jewish--the Nazis wouldn't have accepted her. Where does a nice Jewish anti-Semite belong?
