"That I love her and support her, that her flame will burn twice as bright on the battlefield if she truly lets her feelings shine, and that her allowance disappears if I so much as hear the words 'matching tattoos' before they've been together at least a year."

Der Datenschutzbeauftragte von Baden-Württemberg hält die Weitergabe von Corona-Gästelisten für unkritisch (derselbe, der es ok findet, in Mannheim 70 Überwachungskameras mit Bewegungserkennung aufzuhängen).
