Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was not joking when I talked about a draught followed by a flash flood. Spain (especially the Mediterranean coast) is prone to flooding at this time of the year, on the heels of scorching summer heat.

Over the last decade or so there have been two tragic flash floods in Spain, one in Biescas (Aragón) where a campsite in a mountain valley was washed away by a flash flood, and another in Extremadura where a whole neighbourhood was washed away by a swollen river.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
