Ha ha. Yes!

As a recent editorial in Der Spiegel put it, Brits “have an inner independence that we Germans lack, in addition to myriad anti-authoritarian, defiant tendencies.”


Ha ha. Der Spiegel. Ha ha. (And I mock this as someone of very recent German decent.)

I was at an informal meeting of the intelligentsia of Starkvegas this evening. A few of us spoke of Dickens’ A Child’s History of England. One bright young English professor was aghast that I was celebrating the success of #Brexit (and was at the same time very excited for Miss M).


Yes. Yes. I know tomorrow may bring other news. But it is fun to celebrate Liberty, isn’t it? Dang. I may even read the Grievances this weekend!
