Say what you will about red states versus blue states, but things could always be worse. It's unfortunate, though, that things in Germany have gotten so bad that they've actually reflected on this thought.
Secondly, only 12% want the wall back in the east- that means 88% DON'T, right? I guess the headline wouldn't be as sexy if they focused on that side. Personally, I don't consider 12% (or 25% really, for that matter) to be "many."
We've also got to remember that Germany as a united country doesn't even have a history half that of the US. I can only imagine the level of frustration that has risen in West Germany since reunification. I am surprosed numbers aren't higher. Guru is correct that the numbers are low.
Well anyways, I posted this (The W) a while back and I got good news this morning. Daniel's FINALLY back if Tampa. He stopped by around 6am to see what I was up to, it seems he got back Thursday and spent Thursday night and all day Friday in bed...
