In solidarity, ich bin ein employee in the field

"We are you, you are us.''

-- Anonymous@10:04 p.m., in an entirely reasonable appeal to Gannett Bloggers to understand that lots of employees at Corporate are experiencing the same hard times as those in the field: "We worry about paying our mortgages, buying food and gas and saving for our kids' educations. We, too, want good leadership and to be treated as valued employees."

Ich bin ein Berliner was a memorable line from President John F. Kennedy's 1963 speech in West Berlin. (However, some puzzled Germans wondered why he was declaring himself a donut.)

  1. Quick note: actually the "donut" deal regarding JFK is bogus. His "Ich bin ein Berliner" is correct since Kennedy was not actually from Berlin, and is not a reference to a donut. Carry on.

  2. Indeed. It is an urban myth.
