This is going to be interesting indeed. Last night's microphone-shmoozing yielded a lot of remarks about "stability" and "keeping extremists out". (At least, these were two keywords that jumped out at me.)

History Buried in the Rubble: Cologne Archive Building Collapses - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International
