The Social Life Of Dead Poets

From the folks who brought you "Name That Sausage" comes the next great craze "Find That Schiller!"

Who is buried in Friedrich Schiller's tomb? Several people, apparently, but none of them the famous poet and playwright, according to new research.

After two years of painstaking DNA research, experts have determined that none of the remains billed as those of Schiller belong to the German writer, who died in Weimar in 1805, Germany's MDR television reported. The study, dubbed the Friedrich-Schiller Code, was undertaken by the television station, the Foundation of Weimar Classics and an international team of scientists.

"Two years ago I was certain that we would prove that it was him; now we have proved the opposite," said foundation president Hellmut Seemann, whose organization oversees the Schiller archives and exhibitions.

What's next you wonder?  Why, "Where's (Ralph) Waldo (Emerson)" of course.

    Obvious the dirty work of VP Cheney. Friedrich Schiller is actually buried in Area 51 of Gitmo where he was murdered by Ken Lay and Richard Nixon using a combination of DDT, Alar, and nuclear waste from Three Mile Island. Schiller was about to tell Mary Mapes how the Bush Administration invented global warming and used the Patriot Act to bring down the WTC with controlled detonations as a pretext for fighting an illegal war for oil in ANWAR. There were memos and everything.
     
    Don’t bother me by asking for proof of what I say. That would be a Distraction from the Real Issues.

    Mwalimu, who are you working for?  Only an obvious tool would overlook Karl Rove’s undoubted involvement!
