Krystal Night


"So what I thought I'd do is, I thought I'd name my new limo company after an atrocity committed by the Germans just before World War II. What do you think? You don't like it? You're making a face. I know it's not topical but ... oh. That's not it? ... Well, who needs Jewish customers, anyway?"

Wow. Owners really REALLY need to research a name because it is the MOST important thing about their business. That is just pathetic. And it's probably not just one ignorant person, apparently no one caught the faux pas....all the way through the naming process.

Joy, I took your advice and asked my local newspaper guy about putting something in his publication. He was all, "what's Crystal Night?", a response that validates your whole thesis of not forgetting history. Oy.
