Subject: Re: "Ich bin ein Berliner"
When I was in Austria studying German, my teacher told us that the word
"Berliner" does indeed refer to a jelly doughnut in some areas (every
little district seems to have different words for pastries). He said
that Kennedy's remark was, however, easily understood with its original
intent and was not the disastrous gaffe some people make it out to be.
