Nice description. ;-) But have you heard about the problems with the  
new orthography in Germany? 16 ministries are responsible for  
education! 16 different approaches to make school worse and worse.

Since August 1 everywhere in Germany rules the new orthography,  
everywhere? No two dwarf kings, Their Mighty Illnesses Mr. Stoiber  
from Bayern and Mr. WhatishisName from NRW stopped the process, so  
that in Bayern and NRW we have two orthographies. Besides only 1% of  
the German population can write correctly in even one orthography.

16 federal states blocking reforms in Germany since I can think by  
the worse invention ever: the second chamber of our political system  
called Bundesrat.

If I can achieve the end of our federal states or only the end of the  
Bundesrat, my life will have been worth living. ;-)
