'The price of ridding society of bad is always high, love Daddy.'
A letter from future CIA director, Richard Helms, when he was an intelligence operative during WWII, to his young son. Helms got into Hitler's chancellery in Berlin and took a piece of the Fuehrer's stationery… he wrote the letter to his son, Dennis, saying in part "The man who might have written on this card once controlled Europe - three short years ago when you were born. Today he is dead, his memory despised, his country in ruins." He dated the letter "V-E day" for May 8, 1945.
