Hi Mark,

I like the tone better... 

But the whiff I got from the other version - where she was going to compare the Nazi/Jewish thing
to the White/Black thing in Alabama - was what really piqued my interest. (What the hell happened that would send her running back to the ghosts of Germany?) I think this is what makes your story sound like something worth reading...
Don't lose it.

Regards,

I want to thank everyone who gave me advice and support along the way. The journey's not over, of course, but I wanted to say that even if/when I don't take someone's input, I appreciate it. In this largely solitary pursuit, sometimes just one comment, good or bad, can be the finger in the dike (and boy, don't we know there's pressure behind that earthen wall).

But I think I've abused you all long enough with my query mosaics. Not that I'm done contributing, mind you. See you all around...

Hi Mark,
Guess I got to this game a little late. I hope you have good fortune with your query. I think it looks great.
