The History of Germany

This is worth reading:
The killing in 1967 of an unarmed demonstrator by a police officer in West Berlin set off a left-wing protest movement and put conservative West Germany on course to evolve into the progressive country it has become today.

Now a discovery in the archives of the East German secret police, known as the Stasi, has upended Germany’s perception of its postwar history. The killer, Karl-Heinz Kurras, though working for the West Berlin police, was at the time also acting as a Stasi spy for East Germany.

"I didn't ask who gave the order because it had nothing to do with business."

Events are slippery and fickle, sometimes even more so decades after the fact.

Was your mom or dad a Nazi?
Do you hate the paparazzi?

Going back to where you were, man?
Is the future predetermined?

Did you shoot them on an order?
That came from a tape recorder?

Are you having any fun, men?
Are you going on the run,then?

Obviously, beyond the first three lines of "Nina, is there anyone finah, in the state of carolina?" I have nothing else to offer.

But it's telling (hee hee) that capcha says "storis"....

And Borges was a right-winger. Or was he?

I'm not sure I am capable of anything as awesome as "Convertibles And Headbands" or "Beat Of The Traps", but I'm game. If I ever get any free time, that is.
