- "are the decemberists anti-semitic": Despite lyrics like "And what do we do with ten dirty Jews, a thirty-ought full of rock salt and a warm afternoon?"1 and "To tell the tale of the jewess and the madarin chinese boy" 2, Abraham Foxman is not boycotting the Decemberists. For more information on the historical nature of The Decemberists' songs, read Gentry Boeckel's review of Castaways and Cutouts in Stylus Magazine.3

However, when it was time to traverse the minefields on Omaha Beach, do you think the "Greatest Generation" used Google to find the best path? Hell no, it would have taken too long! They used trial and error, as should you, soldier!

Odalisque, Track 5 from Castaways & Cutouts
Shanty for the Arethusa, Track 1 from Her Majesty The Decemberists
As a final word on the topic, it is worth noting that the musical predecessor of The Decemberists, Neutral Milk Hotel, wrote a song about Anne Frank, entitled "Holland, 1945" (Track 6 on In the Aeroplane Over the Sea). It begins thus:
The only girl I've ever loved
Was born with roses in her eyes
But then they buried her alive
One evening 1945
With just her sister at her side
And only weeks before the guns
All came and rained on everyone
