Only Following Orders?
10 October 2017 | by pawprint-25434See all my reviews

At least one person said that D. Kelley's repeating "But I was only following orders!" evoked a bit of sympathy. Personally, I was reminded of the Nazi war criminals who fell back on that excuse. Since the episode was written in the early 1960's when WW2 and it's aftermath would have been fresher in people's minds, I suspect the writers intended that.

Another reviewer made a good point that the whole "It must be according to White Man's Law!" attitude may not be so noble as the characters (and writers?) seemed to think.

One question: does anyone know what "the white man's poison that makes the dead smile" actually was?
