    I read Uwe’s account in AARP’s Maturity some years ago when he told of living in a shack
    BUT that he had his medical insurance card :
    IF you were a citizen of Germany you had medical insurance ! Bravo Deutschland !
    Would Herr Professor Rheinhardt be willing to serve in Dennis Kucinich’s cabinet as Secretary of Health & Human Services ?
