That is, Amazon.de is in the process of developing a version of its site
entirely in English exactly parallel to the one in German, despite the
existence of Amazon.com and Amazon.uk and the fact that only a single ID
and password is needed to do business with any Amazon on earth.

The English-language version is still in beta, so Amazon.de isn't truly
"available in English," but it's close enough for government work.
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
