The Berlin wall was opened up 25 years ago today. Here, take a couple of minutes and read up on that concrete affront to humanity over at Wikipedia. Pretty bad. Then take a minute to read about the East German border guard, Harald Jäger, who in effect said "the Party's over" and opened the gates. Pretty good!
Sure, the pic's from 1961, but it's still apt today.
What were you doing on this day in 1989? I was busy winding down from a three-month experiment, and winding up for six months of data analysis. What will you do with your freedom today? What will you do today to preserve freedom's future?
