NAZI BOFFIN CROAKS AFTER GOOD RUN


Nazi 'not-Nazi Party' boffins laugh last and best.


But he was one of our Nazi boffins.

Your life's legacy can be a gentile upper class fiend's if you're a convenient one. "Konrad Dannenberg, 96, a German rocket scientist who was part of Wernher von Braun's team that helped put the first American astronauts on the moon, died Feb. 16 of natural causes at a Huntsville, Alabama, rehab center," reported the LA Times today.

Or, "Konrad Dannenberg, 96, a German rocket scientist who was part of Wernher von Braun's team that used Jewish concentration camp labor to build missiles for randomly blowing up civilians in London died Feb. 16 of natural causes at a Huntsville, Alabama, rehab center ..."

"During WW II, Dannenberg, who was not a member of the Nazi Party -- like many WW II-era not-members of the Nazi Party Germans who didn't really give a fig about Jews and undesirables being put down for the glory of the Reich as long as the missiles got built, left the battlefield to work on the V2 rocket... Dannenberg was also said to have contributed the line, 'Is it safe?' in the movie 'The Marathon Man,'" reported the Times. (Well, no, the newspaper didn't write about three quarters of that.)

He helped us beat the Commies in the space race. That's what it said.
