Yeah, I recall another German with some really radical views too. He was
quite charismatic and people flocked about him from miles around. I hear he
finally committed suicide in '45 though. I couldn't agree with his views
either. I've never been able to agree with fanatics. It must be the English,
Irish, Scottish, Welch, Penselvania Dutch, French Canadian in me. I do like
German cars though. ;-)
