When I was in Army Basic Training, a guy from rural Minnesota, who found out I was Jewish, one evening started slowly circling me, around and around he went. I asked him why? His reply was that he was looking for the horns in my head. That's what he had been taught, that Jews had horns in their head, and I was the first actual Jew he met and so he went looking for my horns.


Michelangelo's statue of Moses had "horns" as a misinterpretation of radiance or, in modern terminology, a charismatic personality.
