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

But, and really, don't take this the wrong way, nothing against you, and we could never get tired of your or anything, but it would be nice to hear from other Europeans too.  

You are right that they do post on Kos, but it is usually on American issues or the way Europe fits into American issues.  I'm thinking we need more diaries like "a day in the life of a German or Italian or Brit or whatever."  Things that are NOT news to YOU, but would be very informative to us.

And I think we are especially interested in benefits.  What does the gov't pay for or garantee?  What is expected of you in return?  How does a "welfare state" actually function?  Where does all the money come from?  That kind of thing.  

More clear examples of how, exactly, what Europe is doing differs from what America is doing, and how we might try to implement similar policies and lifestyles in America.
