The Wall Tumbled Down (follow up)


This weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal features articles on the November 9, 1989 events in its “Review” section. (Print edition or See ) The WSJ online is available to non-subscribers this weekend.

There is also an article on the difficulty a former VOPO had in integrating into the western culture, and one dispelling the myth that President Kennedy made a mistake in grammar with his “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech. I asked my German instructor decades ago about that, and she informed me that including the “ein” (trans. “a” — indefinite article) would NOT have changed the meaning to a jelly doughnut. This writer does a better job than I could explaining.

My day job is assisting individuals and small businesses as a lawyer. I taught real estate law and American history in the Dallas County Community College system. I have owned and operated private security firms and was a police officer and criminal investigator for the Dallas Police Department.

I am interested in history and historical research, music, cycling, and British mysteries and police dramas.

I welcome comments, positive, negative, or neutral, if they are respectful.
