In Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in February 1994, accused murderer Donald Leroy Evans, 38, filed a pre-trial motion asking permission to wear a Ku Klux Klan robe in the courtroom and to be referred to in legal documents by “the honorable and respected name of Hi Hitler.” According to courthouse employees interviewed by the Associated Press, Evans thought Adolf Hitler’s followers were saying “Hi Hitler” rather than “Heil, Hitler.” The depth and degree of Evans ignorance is so blatant that it is nearly laughable. Plato said, “Ignorance is the root and stem of all evil.” There is little question that Plato was right on target in this situation. This is Just-A-Minute.
