Note the hand-written note in the background asking for supporting signatures.
Before Christmas all tenders for the five remaining bratwurst stands were in with vendors Uhl and Hauber failing. A storm broke loose. The Badische Zeitung received hundreds of angry letters to the editor, petitions were launched, and signature lists are circulated to support the two "losers". The most reasonable letter to the editor I read said: Five bratwurst-selling stands are sufficient.
Red Baron was quite neutral in this quarrel until he discovered the best invention made since the birth of the Lange Rote. How often were you frustrated eating a bun rather than a bratwurst? While the two ends are sticking out you start eating the sausage until you are left with a tiny rest of bratwurst hidden in the bun. What a sad end!

I took the photo of my Lange Rote in portrait mode with my iPhone 7 plus.
Hauber's traditionally also sells bratwurst in buns visible in the background.
My only conclusion: the Hauber's Grillwurst stand must remain.
