Thread Name: Song Challenge! - Part 90
Subject: RE: SONG CHALLENGE! - Part 90
Just an aside remark: That's at least the fourth story from Germany for a song challenge. Without exception, I never had read the story before in our newspapers. One time, the story was a complete invention, one time it was partially true, the other two times I found not the slightest indication it had happened at all.

It makes me wonder about the North American press and its scrutiny. This time as well I guess the story is an invention without any factual basis.

Don't let this disturb you. We all know (folk) songs don't need a factual basis.
