Deutsches Derby in Hamburg


With the now confirmed entry of BROWN PANTHER i cannot resist a punt. Brown Panther is owned by football great Michael Owen ( lucky bastard ) and trained by the shrewd Tom Dascombe, who wouldn't bring the horse over the channel without having a lively chance of winning methinks. He is in fine fettle after a recent Ascot win ( see picture ) and also a son of a former Derby winner, so i expect a good run for my money.

Medal for Merkel (" IM Erika " )


The news, that the otherwise respected Mr. Obama handed over the Medal Of Freedom to chancellora Merkel left me flabbergasted. In my opinion her biography does not vindicate that. She is mostly clueless, starts nearly every sentence with the words "I believe...". She is hesitant and made maybe one decision while in office - no money for Greece. The cheque was in the mail three days later. Under her regime the perils of capitalism are alive and well. She is opportunistic and her biggest strength is probably her knowledge, how to remove people, who could jeopardize her position. But then again prizes and awards are like hemorrhoids - at some point every ass gets them.
