Maybe I'm a fine host, but I have a very poor sense of diplomacy - the
reason why I had decided to ignore your previous mail, which I thought was
sent in pointless self-defense, and just wait until the subject died out by
Being utterly thick, I do not understand why you are aiming at me what is
clearly a reply to Howard, and I even less understand where is the connexion
between Mr Henry Ford's well-known paranoid delirium about Jews and pre-war
I am deeply sorry I failed to understand part of the grammar in your
statement, but to me the intellectual problem is that, although historically
very interesting as the ideological background which can remind everyone who
forgot that Mr. Hiltler would have remained a completely obscure activist
without the massive support of American capitalism, and politically
interesting as a contemporary trend which refits old ideas into new
"theories", neither Mr Henry Ford's appreciation of Jazz nor the Islamist
extrapolation reaching as far back as King Solomon or anyone else seem to me
any interest regarding the history of jazz. We are not dealing with the
influence and talent of New York Jews in the 20's here, but with
contemporary hatred pointing out some fictional atavism.
