Philip Klass (aka William Tenn) and Chutzpah


Philip Klass, better known as the writer William Tenn, was a short man, maybe about 5'2" or so. But what he failed to have in height, he more than made up for in bravado and chutzpah.

Phil was in the Army for most of World War II. He scored a very high rating on language aptitude. He was sent to the Univesity of Pittsburgh with 24 other soldiers for intensive training in Serbo-Croation. The plan was, they'd be sent to help liberate Yugoslavia.



It turned out, Phil never got to Yugoslavia, despite having learned Serbo-Croation. And most of the rest of his classmates were sent to the Pacific, where no one spoke Serbo-Croation.



But Phil was sent back to Europe. Since he spoke several languages (in addition to English and Serbo-Cration), he was eventually assigned to be a translator. One of his jobs was to translate for the former concentration camp guards.



So, picture this -- a short, Jewish American army soldier from New York City translating for tall, Aryan Nazi guards who'd spent years facilitating the slaughter of Jewish prisoners.



One of the guards finally asked him, "You speak an unusual kind of German. What is it?"



Phil looked the guard in the eye and said, "It's Yiddish."

Hey! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask. Does building a well-established website like yours take a lot of work? I am completely new to blogging but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

But the greens can at least take comfort in knowing the extent of car recycling. The clear winner in the A-Class at the moment appears to be the Lotus Exige '06, which is a mid-engine rear-wheel drive car that started just within the confines of A-class with a PI of 510. Hobby-grade models are generally more expensive to get into with prices ranging from as low as $100 to well over $500, depending on the model.
