This is worth your read. I had definitely read about Kurt Landauer before, but it was great to be reminded. (And if you’re at all interested in German soccer but have never read Tor! by Uli Hesse-Lichtenberger, do yourself a favor and go pick that up right now.)

That’s all, folks, so to the comments with you!
