The solution to environmental problems has been found in Madrid

Today, February 21, 2008, is a great day. In the morning, the solution of environmental problems has been discovered in Madrid. Madrid is probably one of the most polluted cities in the world. The opposition criticized the lack of action of the City Council regarding this issue at its meeting of the City Council of Madrid, ruled by the PP with an absolute majority. The responsible for the local environment at City Hall is the lady Ana Botella, the wife of Lord Aznar. She has responded to the criticism: "Why are you so pessimistic? You defend a happy world and joy. The joy is the solution and you defend it. Are you happy. The joy is the solution." Mrs. Ana Botella, the wife of Mr Aznar, is a member of ultrafundamentalist religious group called "Legionaries of Christ." It is quite possible that such a solution has been the product of divine revelation. And the enlightened Mrs Botella has enlightened us all. The rationalists have said that such a response was a populist response. But being smart is necessary to be demagogue. The agnostics must admit the possibility that such a solution is correct. For if ever, the European Union has a magnificent anthem. The "Ode to Joy". We, as Europeans, we are obliged to sing the "Ode to Joy" since we got up until we go to bed. After a while, if it is effective, eurotrib should publish a list to the left worldwide and Mrs. Bottle, together, constitute Nobel Prize. Moreover, Beethoven should be named "Benefactor of Humanity". Would it not be wonderful?


Freude! Freude!
