Thanks to Tim for reminding me:

Tim Worstall: Berlin Wall Anniversary

as PJ O'Rourke put it in rather better style:
"We won, and let's not anybody forget it. We, the people, the free and equal citizens of democracies, we living exemplars of the rights of man tore a new asshole in international communism. Their wall is breached. Their gut-string is busted. The rot of their body-politic fills the nostrils of the Earth with a glorious stink. ... The privileges of liberty and the sanctity of of the individual went out and whipped butt."

One of the really important dates in world history.


I had to be reminded myself by Blognor Regis. Weird as I could not travel East until the wall came down, did so within 6 weeks and have made my living from that part of the world ever since.
Anyway, my raised glass was some Wild Turkey. Fine stuff for a fine anniversary.
