Happy birthday, Mr. Schmidt!

Helmut Schmidt, an elderly german Statesman, today reaches the age of 90 years. Helmut Schmidt still is a restless worker, being a publisher and the issuer of »Die Zeit«.

I’m currently reading his latest book »Ausser Dienst«. I have no clue if there are any plans to translate it into english language. If so, I’d like to recommend it. Regardless of ones political provenience, it should be a must read for any german, and a should read for our european neighbours. Both will learn to better understand each other.

Wish you health and hope to see just more of your publications!
