Stamping out secret hate messages
Steve Jackson of Edmonton heard Saroja Coelho's August 25 piece about Irmela Mensah-Schramm, the Berlin woman who tirelessly cleans up Nazi graffiti, and he writes:
I just sent an email to the Alberta gov't based on your story last week. Wouldn't you know I saw a vehicle in my Edmonton neighbourhood with the license plate "HH 88". I immediately thought of the story where your reporter stated that 88 was often used to imitate Hiel Hitler. This person also had a plackard in the vehicle's trailer hitch with "88" inscribed on it. I hope they revoke this license plate. Many thanks for keeping the public informed about the secret code words of hate mongers.
