Hameln is the German town that gave birth to the Pied Piper of Hameln (Hamlin in English). Today, Hameln has a new pied piper, a guy who led his ex-wife through the streets-tied to his car by her neck-after stabbing her, of course. Gates of Vienna has the latest from a defeated Germany (no, not 1945, but 2016).
No word on the status of the pied piper. Better check the river.
