Fortunately, Sarah Sophia, who blogs from her home in Denmark, summed up many Europeans' thoughts about the fall of the Berlin Wall in a post she wrote last week.
When I was in college, I occasionally ran into students with Che Guevara t-shirts who claimed that life in Communist countries was actually quite good. Sorry, but Sarah Sophia describes the situation in East Germany quite well, and reminds us that the Soviets put the wall up in order to keep those in the East from fleeing in droves to the West.
Anyway, for a lighter look at the fall of the Berlin Wall, here's Jon Stewart.
