Recently I dreamt I was browsing the Web when I came across an article written by a German columnist that mentioned an earlier post of mine that offended everyone in Germany. On top of that, the article states that I have since refused to retract the statements I made in the offending post.
I decided to go back and review what I wrote but I just couldn’t see what was so bad about it. Just for good measure I reread it several more times from varying angles and points of view but my posting appeared innocent each and every time. I can’t help wonder what’s so offensive about it considering it doesn’t even make a single reference to Germany.
I’m at a real loss here. I sense I am under great pressure to apologize to Germany but at this point I cannot ascertain exactly what it was I said that caused the uproar in the first place. Perhaps a little illumination detailing the specifics shall suffice.
