"Marchtime" is a parody of ignorance. Ever hear of a modern scholar named "Bernard Lewis?" How about Robert Shapiro, one of Stalin's biographers?

Stalin, a Georgian and former Orthodox Christian seminarian, was extremely anti-Semitic, refusing even to acknowledge the marriage of his daughter Svetlana to a Jewish physician.
