The only good part of today's show was the forced sterilization segment, though I think that had already been covered on 360.

Dear ACAnderfan the subject of the sterilization segment is not a new story as more and more incidents keep coming to light. It is horrible and as Anderson said not many people know about it. But to me the most significant new fact, to me anyway, is that Nazi Germany used this program as an example for their program. That is truly frightening.
