Submission + - Russian Triumph of Tackiness- the Holocaust on Ice (thejewniverse.com)

Lew Lorton writes: For Saturday night's episode, the Russian celebrity competition show, Ice Age, will feature a Holocaust-themed ice-dancing performance. Although is is allegedly inspired by 'Life is Beautiful', there are some diversions from reality. The star, former Olympian Tatiana Navka, wears concentration-camp stripes and yellow stars (without the label Jood or Juif) but she wears a non-standard, by concentration camp rules, skirt — to make skating tricks easier, I imagine. And of course, 13 million Jews, gypsies, Poles and others don't die.

For traveling within Europe, the difference between the shitty "old" airlines and the shitty discount airlines is not worth talking about. It really is on long haul you feel the service mindedness or lack thereof. Hate to say it, but in my experience Lufthansa provides the least shitty long haul economy service among the European carriers.

What? The European parliament *is* elected by the people and they have the final say over what the European Commission legislates. The head of the European Commission is appointed by the Council of Europe which is composed of (surprise, surprise) the governments of the respective European member states. The European Commissioners even have to be approved by the European Parliament.

Where is the democratic deficit in that?

Moreover, European officials are told to leave their national special interests at the door and work for the European people as a whole.
