Liberty and Justice for All?

Betsy: Mom, we have a problem with Ramona.

Me: What is it?

Betsy: She thinks all Austrians are bad.

Me: What? Why?

Betsy: Because Hitler was Austrian. Now she thinks all Austrians are bad.

Me: (uproarious laughter)

Betsy: Mom! This is not funny! She's prejudiced!

Me: (getting hold of myself) Okay, okay. I'll talk to her.

Betsy: Thank you. Now we can go back to playing Ann Estelle.

Well, I'm representing Germany for Model UN. Does that count?

Does Ramona know that the Von Trapps were Austrian as well? That might improve her opinion of Austrians.
