So busy that I’ve been meaning to point you to this article since Monday, but I still haven’t actually managed to read the whole thing. The first two pages are pretty good, though. I don’t know if it’s all about the welfare state, or if he also mentions how much the Dutch are doing to keep the Atlantic ocean from sinking half the country. That money has to come from somewhere (taxes), but I wouldn’t call it welfare. The people who let New Orleans drown probably would, but that’s why we voted their sorry butts out.
Song du jour of the day: Germany’s entry, by Alex Swings Oscar Sings – Miss Kiss Kiss Bang. The song’s okay, but the dancing girls forgot to put their pants on. How embarrassing.
