WE'RE GIVING YOU DETAILED DIRECTIONS SO YOU CAN MORE EFFICIENTLY NOT GO THERE: "Just a short drive from center stage at the [2012 GOP] convention, on an otherwise average street with Thai restaurants and steakhouses, debauchery awaits. 'Nude girls -- blast off in our space ship,' says the sign at 2001 Odyssey. Up and down Dale Mabry Highway, a stretch that claims to have more lap-dance emporiums per square mile than any other city in the country, the message is much the same: come hither, join the fun. This is exactly what party officials will discourage ... But one prominent strip club owner in Tampa doubts the warnings will all be heeded. 'We offer a good time,' said Joe Redner, the owner of Mons Venus, the city’s most famous gentleman’s club, in business for 28 years.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
