HISTORIC RUBBLE--The last time I touched the Berlin Wall (or in my case a piece of it) was on a trip to Washington DC. Inside the fairly new media museum—Newseum—on Pennsylvania Ave. is a section devoted to the “Wall.” It serves as a stark reminder that 25 years ago today the Berlin Wall was breached in the name of freedom. The Wall display is near other historic rubble: pieces of the Twin Towers that fell in New York City on 9-11.
