Why It Matters When Whoopi Said Holocaust Wasn’t About Targeting Jews

Not So Easy Summertime
There once were summertimes when the living was easy, as the song from the Broadway musical “Porgy and Bess” melodically reminds us. But not this summer, not with COVID-19 still spreading dangerously across the land and uncertainty over what happens next after the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.
