Something to Remember


Now, I know 'tis not really the season to think of starvation, war, and atrocity. Or Nazis.

But sometimes those things resurface, and their timing's not so good. Today, another Nazi collaborator resurfaced, or rather his obituary did. His name was Heinrich Gross, he was 90 years old, Austrian, and died of natural causes in his native Vienna. He was a psychiatrist who worked in a clinic where the Nazis killed and conducted experiments on thousands of children who were considered handicapped or antisocial.

It is eerie to me that there are still former Nazis and Nazi collaborators out there. Nazis seem practically surreal to me, unthinkable caricatures of inhumanity, symbols of evil that hardly seem possible. In the 50 years since the Holocaust, the Nazi regime has been canonized as the greatest horror ever to befall the modern world. But as such, it exists--and I'm embarassed to confess it--only as an abstraction to me. I've heard the countless unimaginable stories, I've seen Shoah, I've read Primo Levi. But who were these people really? How did they really happen?

Well, they were this guy. That's why, as the ghost of his past resurfaces quietly, even stealthily, and before it's allowed to disappear forever with him in death, that's why I think it's important to think about him for a minute. And to think about the unbelievableness of what he was allowed to get away with. He did this, lived, prospered and died getting away with it.

Dr. Gross was a prominent psychiatrist at this Vienna hospital. He was accused of complicity in nine deaths of children as part of the Nazi campaign to eliminate worthless lives. Over the course of his life, he was tried three times. And never convicted. After the war, in 1975, he was even awarded the Austria Honorary Cross for Science and Art. I guess the passage of time forgives all, huh? Evidence presented at one of his later trials even showed that the doctor had done research in the 1950's using the preserved brains of some of those children killed by the Nazis. He published five articles using that research. Five articles that earned him a national honor. I guess science forgives all, huh?

In 2003, he was stripped of that honorary title, after his third trial was suspended when Dr. Gross was deemed unfit for trial because of dementia. This was over fifty years after he helped kill "worthless" kids.

So Dr. Gross was an old, old man when he died last week. An old man probably like hundreds of other old men you know and see everyday. The difference is that this old man killed nine worthless kids and got away with it.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

Joey? Joey Gibson0265 from High School? Well how the hell are you, my man? Seems like you're doing well even if you still are the same insufferable bore obsessed with all things "nano" (and i think we all know what we're talking about here) that you were in 10th grade! Anyhoo, thanks for checking in and spreading your holiday cheer.

Hugs and ho, ho, ho's!
