The End of the Diving Board


James W. Von Brunn, the suspect in today's shooting at the Holocaust Museum, is an 88-year-old, anti-Semitic white supremacist who once tried to kidnap members of the Federal Reserve board. In rambling writings he decried "the browning of America" and a Jewish conspiracy "to destroy the White gene-pool." 

Today's attack “shows that the cancer of hatred, bigotry and anti-Semitism is alive
and well in America,” said Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
