Der Spiegel is refreshing

I'm continually surprised by the stories in Spiegel Online, the web version of Der Spiegel. They think nudity is fine, for one thing. And they present a wide range of stories without being judgemental.

Today, they didn't let me down. There's a nice Sunday story called Student Apprentices in Mom's Berlin Sex Shop. The great thing is that there's nothing negative in the article. It's presented as good, clean fun.

Like that would ever happen in America. Sigh. Anyway, it's great Sunday reading.

Update: For contrast, consider three headlines at Huffpo today:

"Kim Kardashian's See-Through Halloween Costume"
"Katy Perry Turns Heads in Plunging Dress"
"Miley Cyrus Wears Bra as Top"

Maybe someday we'll be as sophisticated as Germany, but I doubt it.
