Who in the World Is Robert Clary?

On Wednesday, I wrote a note about a French lottery scam that told me I "won" a goodly amount of Francs (Euros now, I guess) and should contact Robert Clary to collect my winnings.

I asked you all who Robert Clary is, and I think we set a record with the number of responses -- 40 so far! You'll find a couple of them in today's Mailbag. Of course, as many of you pointed out, Clary played Corporal Louis LeBeau on "Hogan's Heroes," a show I try to watch at least once a day.

What's interesting about the show is that many of the Germans -- Klink, Schultz and Burkhalter, to name a few -- were played by Germans of Jewish descent who escaped the Nazis. What's even more interesting is how convincing they are as German officers. Makes you wonder how different these races really are and exposes the idiocy and evil of the Holocaust.

Clary, himself a French Jew, survived Buchenwald and remains a fine actor and hero to this day.
