  1. So the problem is that different levels of rent control interfere with each other? When was the last time there was a free market in the rent industry?
  2. Never let a crisis go to waste. Politicians are enjoying the emergency power they have given themselves way too much.
  3. From https://www.facebook.com/groups/PanzerFacts/permalink/1913211905480158/ Wagen 116 "Lotte" (3) of Abt.14, one of two tanks to remain on the Fort de la Pompelle memorial battlefield outside Reims.

  9. I remember reading (Spielberger?) that the Tiger II required substantially fewer man-hours to manufacture than the Tiger I (with Panther being near the pzkfw IV). Does anyone have any figures?
  10. No doubt the man made enormous contributions to the war effort and then was royally screwed by his country. But is he the most deserving person out there to have his face on that bill? Honest question.
  11. Would he be on that Bill had he been straight?
  12. IIRC, he came out of the conservative closet well after he made it.
