Quote of the Day: A "responsible" white separatist

"The responsible white separatist community condemns this. It makes us look bad."

--John de Nugent, an acquaintance of James W. von Brunn, who opened fire at the Holocaust Museum.

Via Steve Waldman via The WaPo.

PS: De Nugent also called von Brunn a genius but described the shooting as the act of "a loner and a hothead." The storyhas many good details, including von Brunn getting kicked out of Mensa for failure to pay dues.
