Michael Jackson found himself in the files of the East German secret police, the Stasi, because of a concert he gave right next to the Berlin Wall in 1988.

The Stasi were known to be paranoid, but I think this goes a bit far.

Not that they were entirely wrong. I believe that West German broadcasts of Dallas, and the opulence of the lifestyle depicted therein were credited with providing the first chink in the old Berlin Wall.

I have a feeling this is gonna get deleted soon, so let me say this quick: Ruthless Bunny, your Charmin Bears blog is one of the most interesting things I've seen lately. Truly.

It doesn't seem possible to read the actual file online -- too bad.

If the files were so secret, how was Michael able to find himself?

....and? He also has a police record because a child accused him of molesting him. What's your point?
