Otto van Bismarck does not get quoted very often but this is a classic:

Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made.

Of course, the problem is that a constant news bombardment from everywhere creates a sausage=making feast. I guess the openness and transparency this all engenders is a good thing but knowing that the politicians will not make the changes that are needed is very frustrating.

I really think they will not make the leap until it is really too late. I guess wearing shorts and Hawaiian shirts due to the heat will be something to look forward to.
