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

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.

Egon Krenz is free
Egon Krenz, the last leader of the former DDR was released from prison after he spent 6.5 years in prison. He was charged for him being part of a system that was found guilty for manslaughter at the German/ German border.
Having not lived in the former DDR but always in the western part of Germany, I have no idea how powerful Krenz was when the DDR was existing, and I know enough about how a political party works to know, that he had to work for years or better decades to achieve such a position. So he can't tell anyone that he just was never involved in anything.
His time in prison was pretty comfortable, too. He just slept there. Left it in the morning for work and came back at the evening to sleep and worked during the day.
Now he threatens to do what everyone wants to do who has nothing to contribute to worlds history (at least the last months in Germany) he wants to write a book.
I wonder who will buy it.
