I watch more than my share of news from Europe, and a great deal of it does not appear on American news channels. I knew about the Paris flooding days ago. I also recently watched the opening ceremonies of the Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland, which is the world’s longest tunnel, built for 11 billion Euro. You can find many videos of these opening ceremonies by searching YouTube, and it is probably the most bizarre ceremony I have ever witnessed outside of a Madonna concert.
If you live in Switzerland, can you explain what that was all about…at what point do you understand what is happening to your continent?
