I'm a large advocate to a system of checks and balances. Which is one of the reasons I love blogs so much. They tend to check the MSM and they are known for checking each other.
And I am totally open to being checked.
Apparently I should have checked myself before, but I just thought the story was interesting, and not entirely unbelievable. Oh well, I'm just glad I can love Germany again.
