'Nuff said

(Occasional item taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes.)

What is horrifying about Anne Frank’s diary is not so much the death of a girl as the crime of a state.

-- Nicholas D. Kristof, in a New York Times column on why genocide matters; why, in his view, deaths and destruction in Darfur deserve attention even though 10 times more lives have been lost amid conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo in the last 10 years.

May I translate the page for you?

This is a photo of myself as I would always like to look. Then I would still have a chance to go to Holywood (sic). It's a pity but now I mostly look different from this.

What little girl doesn't dream about going to Hollywood? It breaks your heart.
