Lilli Marleen

Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

You look for the Song Lilli Marleen?

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

A Thought Project
is what shell from Across the Atlantic calls her question, how the last US presidents might be remembered in about 100 years.
You'd be shocked to hear what average Germans know about US Presidents, but let's ask some above-average educated ones in their 30ies and you might get answers like these:
Carter: Peanuts, didn't he get a peace-prize??
Reagan: He was an actor like Arnie.
Bush I: Who?
Clinton: Monica, Impeachment
Bush II: Time will tell.
I'm with shell on the last one - Bush will either be remembered as a stupid Cowboy who had his four years and really screwed it up or as hero of the middle East who earned his second four years.
From the older Presidents, I'd guess germans just know
Kennedy: killed by whom?
Nixon: Watergate
Ford - Cars?
Not to think about what Europeans will remember in 100 years. But let's justwait for 20 years, meet then again and compare notes, okay? ;-)
