Sixty years after Professor Müller painted his horrific image of the war that swallowed Dresden, Germany, tourists sit in summer clothes
and chat happily in Dresden cafes.

is because we pay too little attention the first time.

There’s another Quixote nutjob out there! Wizzo has a brother!
Did I just call the wizard a nutjob?
Let’s hope he doesn’t read this deep into the rabbit hole…
