    Good. Doubtless it will embarrass the Turks, much as the escapades of the Olympic Torch are embarrassing the Chinese. Good. They should both be embarrassed, in fact 'embarrassed' is far too weak; 'downright ashamed' should be the emotion they feel about it.

    Well said, Matt.

    My great-grandfather stowed away on a ship as a young teenager to escape the genocide (yes, the genocide). He came to America by himself. I have no idea what happened to the rest of the family. As far as I know, no one ever heard from them again.

    It infuriates me whenever I hear the Turkish denial machine in high gear (which is pretty much all the time). It takes the power of the Holy Spirit to keep me from hatred on this issue.

    I suppose I should in all fairness declare an interest too: my mother's side of the family had homes in Smyrna (now Izmir) which were either repossessed or burnt by the Turks in September 1922. My family history in that regard is better laid out in an article I wrote here:

    (my great-grandmother, for whom my daughter Elise is named)
