Zapfenstreich

Huh ? What ? I hear you askin'. Well, that is the name for a farewell ritual conducted for high ranked German politicians leaving office. Soldiers, torches, big band, the whole enchilada. If i had behaved like the former federal president C. Wulff i would sneak out  through the backdoor, but he being himself wants the complete program and of course gets not just that, but on top an annual pension of 199000.- Euros for a tenure less than twenty months. And when i hear, that still many Germans support him i am ready once more to become despaired with my fellow countrymen.
