  1. Skylar loves that joke too. It’s true, as per the Wikipedia entry, that saying “Ich bin ein Berliner” in Berlin when JFK did was not to say “I’m a jelly doughnut.” But numerous German kids — not in Berlin, mind you — made amused reference to his “slip” when I was an exchange student there. It has become a joke over time, in other words.

    I’m sending you an e-mail with a special German bookstore request, BTW.

  2. Oh, I can put it here too, I guess. Here’s the link. There are two “cyberpunk” novels by Myra Çakan, a woman of Turkish descent, that I’m rather desperate to get a hold of. I’ll arrange to have them flown by owl from Montreal to Tucson, naturally.
