Keeping Spotlight on Genocide Replay

I particularly appreciate the Dec. 17 Danziger cartoon of a well-heeled couple commenting on the film ``Schindler's List'' while oblivious to the news of the raging replay of the Holocaust in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Several days prior to this cartoon's publication, a Santa-and-Rudolph ``Wishing you a Merry Christmas'' sign was placed in front of my yard installation that presents a Bosnian family mourning a loved one. It declares: ``Stop Genocide, Help Bosnia.''
