All The Best
THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED
I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.
My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.
At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.
An elephant never forgets.

Rousing Speeches to Large Excited German Crowds is Nothing New
According to a recent poll, Obama has the confidence of 84 percent of the French, 82 percent of the Germans and 74 percent of the Brits. They have no clue as to what he is about, but no matter. Of the three countries, Obama is preparing the big pitch and the stem winder for the Germans. That is a soft choice. Germans like big speeches. They like the glow and fervor created by a mesmerizing speaker. It stirs the Teutonic soul.
Obama will be there in front of an adoring crowd with his head appropriately tilted looking towards the heavens and the Germans will hang on every word. Germans know nothing about Obama except he is not Bush. Obama is an American that appeals to the European palate. That will further eroticse the American left. Hopefully it will end as a net negative to middle America.
