The Pied Piper

Latest to be defenestrated is a statue of Thomas Jefferson in New York City. The man who among many other achievements wrote the Declaration of Independence and arranged the Louisiana Purchase is now contemptuously dismissed simply as “a well known slaveowner” and so consigned to Trotsky’s “dustbin of history.”

Perhaps we should replace Jefferson et al. with copies of Hamelin’s Pied Piper .
