Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

You know? People (including me) made a whole lot of fun of Minnessota when they elected Jesse Ventura (a former pro westler) governor, but the guy was anything but a dimwit. One of his best proposals was that the legislature should spend one year out of every 4 pruning away outdated or unnecessary laws instead of writing new ones.
