SOME MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND READING: This piece by Jack Neely on The Great War, at home and abroad, is quite good. It also makes clear that we're still cleaning up the messes made by diplomats nearly a hundred years ago. And some things sound surprisingly contemporary: "Months after the Armistice, there remained a strong anti-occupation insurgency in Germany, and 1919 bred rumors of German saboteurs making their way to America." No comparable waves of anti-immigrant hysteria this time around, though.
