A German Newspaper
The Geek brought me a German newspaper today - one of his colleagues had been in Germany and since he knows that I love to read this paper he bought one for me.
Actually, it's not just a German newspaper - it's my FAVORITE German newspaper. It's a weekly with excellent articles. One of the founding editors of the paper was former German chancellor Helmut Schmidt, a social democrat; another one was Marion Gräfin Dönhoff, one of the most important publicists in West Germany after the war whom I was lucky enough to meet personally in 1980. She was one of the "great women" with a beautiful attitude and standing.
Although the paper is from May 5th, I will enjoy reading it. The articles are always interesting and clever and, very important, so very well written. I usually go online to read this paper, but nothing beats to have the actual paper in my hand, to hear the soft rustling and to smell this typical newspaper scent.
Am I old fashioned or what? I guess I am.
