Ya' s'pose the Germans will try to get Rummy's trial moved to Atlanta?

"Civil rights groups filed a suit with German prosecutors on Tuesday seeking war crimes charges against outgoing Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld for alleged abuse of detainees at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo prisons."

"Mayor Bill Campbell today (Edit: December 17, 1998) announced that on his behalf a delegation under the leadership of Atlanta City Council member Vern McCarty has signed a Sister City Agreement between Atlanta and the German City of Nuremberg. The two cities will explore a closer cooperation in the areas of economic, cultural and educational development."

Maybe the folks in Georgia wouldn't think much of it at first, but it sounds like a good idea to me. We could probably bring 'em around with ideas like a scaffold-building contest, or a shooting contest to select people for a firing squad if that was called for, maybe an award for the most ingenious Rube Goldberg contraption to trigger a guillotine...Whaddayathink?

(EDIT: Can't get the Reuters "article" link to work, so have substituted the "home page" link.)
