Allan Woods, the Toronto Star's reporter covering Stephen Harper's European trip, trashes him in today's paper for not being chatty during or after his visit to Auschwitz.
Some things leave you speechless, Allan.
What is he supposed to say? What can anyone say that fits the situation?
This is what the Ottawa Citizen reports Harper wrote in the Auschwitz guest book:
"We are witness here to the vestiges of unspeakable cruelty, horror and death. Let us never forget these things and work always to prevent their repetition.
"Lord, bless the souls of those who suffered and perished here, and deliver us from evil.
"Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada, April 5, 2008"
That says it all.
