Long live Jürgen Konings! Had it not been for his status as a hero with a group of Dutch villains, our Liberation Building would never have been evacuated and Flanders would have been deprived of broadcasting unforgettable news on VTM. We got urgent news, not from our Palace of Mirrors in Antwerp but from the broom parlor in Vilford, a two-in-one and a half room that usually only the cleaning lady and wealthy employees find their way. Emergency broadcaster Danny Verstreeten, who could henceforth claim the honorary title EHBO-Dany, was seated at a wooden table hastily stolen from the Villeford thrift store. Outside the picture, the left front leg of the table was supported by a tucked beer rug. A screen was installed behind EHBO-Dany. My first impression was a slideshow, when I expected a blurry slide of Jürgen Conings at any moment, albeit upside down. EHBO-Dany was left with nothing, except for the mop and swifter cleaning staff. In the absence of an automated device, First Aid Dany has read brand new scripts from his laptop. He had guesses at the beginning and end of the image parts. And with us, emergency monitors and disaster tourists, discover news instantly. I should have guessed, in style and setting: DDR, 1973. But Danny, he was brilliant.
