There's a "Trimet Respects Civil Rights" notice on all the public transit vehicles in Portland. It's one straightforward paragraph translated into 6 languages. Why is it that in the [what I believe to be] Russian translation, the word "Trimet" only appears once, whereas in the 5 other languages it appears twice? [more inside]

Help me with a German sentence (quote?).
German speakers: is the following sentence a quote from German literature? It's in reference to a picture of a Jewish headstone with pebbles on it.
"Wieviel Wissen wird unter diesen Steinen liegen"
Just wondering if this is a literary quote, or merely the musings of the commentor.
