   Helmut Krone:  'I had a German upbring-ing. And I'm the recipient of the best of such an upbringing as well as the victim of the worst part of it. A German son is always wrong until he's proved himself to be right. He is a know-nothing and has everything to prove. It gives you a certain insecurity which is the opposite of chutzpah.'
