Ach! Taxes are *so* boring! Especially if you don't pay them.

(Ok, things are different in Germany, because you pay and there are
still no kindergardens, schools, public swimming baths, public
libraries, proper health care and autobahns and all the other
fantastic things that distant foreign countries lands like
Denmark, Sweden and possibly even, aeh, France do have because of
taxes, so it is understandable that my fellow-countrymen arrange
financial transactions.)

Uh, law! I'm sorry but i'm with David Bowie here. Except for
a single sentence i've seen live on TV; Jutta Limbach, at that
time President of the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany,
the opinion of the court, in perfect German and with references
back into the 18th centure if i recall correctly. And who else
should have done it, if not a cultured woman?
