YOu should emphasize

that some companies were not founded before 1945 !

And some very big ones still did not join ! It is all over the German media.

BTW my grandfather died on the day after capitulation when British forces decided to bomb the locations in Meran, italy.

War is allways rediculous, especially when those things are involved.

MY little one man show donated 500 US$ as well - I feel responsible, even though I still was less than liquid at that time.

Hi Chris - good to hear from you...

Thanks for your input. When I post news feeds I don't add any comments - they should stand on their own. If I want to add something I'll usually post a response. I just like keeping everyone informed when it comes to auto/Porsche-related news.

It is sad, indeed. On an unrelated issue, we're only getting $300...

back, per taxpayer, as a result of the huge tax refund that the current Bush administration has gotten passed.

Sure seems like a waste to me...$300 per person - doesn't seem like it can help the economy even if everyone spends it.

I personally would have preferred to see that money pay down the national debt or go towards something that everyone would benefit more from than spending 300 bucks.

That's part of the Bush administration's "strategery". Dan, didn't you know that. :^)
