It was Carol who thought I worked for an extreme right-wing 20th century German dictatorship. Stella's the one who thinks I work for an extreme left-wing 20th century German dictatorship. I know, it's hard to keep this all straight.

But clearly ,with a name like "Kurt", I've got to be some kind of Teutonic movie villain, right?

That is NOT how dissent was dealt with by the STASI. Your exageration dimminises the horible experiences of hundred of thousands if not millions.

Hey, whoa, please fix that quote attribution. That was Stella, not me. To be precise, that was Stella explaining why she thinks I'm just like the communist-era East German secret police.

I think I'll bump this just because it's fun to reminisce about those good old days back in October.
