European fury grows over NSA spy scandal

The German magazine der Spiegel today had a bit of fun with the spy scandal that has Europe and much of the rest of the world in an uproar. They ran a piece about an imaginary text-ersation between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her husband. The Chancellor confides that she’s more than a bit concerned the U.S. President Barack Obama “never thanked us for that nice Streuselkuchen. I must raise that with him.” Before her husband has the time to respond, a text arrives from the American president, in which he writes: “Just occurred to me that I never thanked you for the nice Streuselkuchen. It’s wonderful. I keep it on my desk and Michelle waters it every day.”
