It’s a bit unfair: now that we, the people of Switzerland, are finally fully integrated in the UN (we’ve had the privilege of paying much money for UN activities for a long time, but we were not a full member), you’re telling me that the party is over. Mind you, in our country it isn’t up to a few politicians to say “hey, let’s join that club,” we had to coax a majority of the electorate into spending that extra international money.

In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
