      A few months back I read a NYT opinion column by a young German, the political editor of Die Zeit, that not only discounted history but maligned one of the greatest German writers of the past century while so doing.

      The next cycle of European (un)sanity appears to be establishing itself and finding its apologists: delayed a trifle by the Euro project perhaps but still more or less on schedule.
