Tunnel Vision (and now the news)

Luxembourg is incredible. The Domestic News section in any news providing medium is always boring to say the least. As we all know, no news is good news, but what is incredible is the constancy with which "No News" is available in Letzebuerg. Today's headliner is Traffic Accident (in tunnel - with picture)... Here is rest of today's domestic (as in national) news from

I am still undecided what the man could be in prison for. Blocking children in lifts? Causing a traffic accident? Putting a dog on railtracks? or Reading the news?

Complain, complain, complain... I should be content with all this shouldn't I? Somehow we are never content. OR maybe I just miss the Luxembourgish Lorna equivalent that would make some days of the week more interesting.

If you want boring news, try the Cambridgeshire news - country fairs, flower shows, parish gatherings, traffic warden tickets 50 cars in a day, little shop has been refurbished, road has been re-surfaced, post box removed from Street X ... The real *big* news was when some parish or other served a pig roast and the vegetarians were up in arms. Wow.

u anki assfidanken...

della serie "ghawdxi u kburi": the day you learn to speak and write luxembourgish is the first day of the eternal boredom in your life. le ma naqrax land.

donnu kien hawn xi erba minn nies hawn. how sweet. sirna popular.

Believe me Jacques you still have to sample the boredom of Danish news and the impossibility of the Danish language. The highlight of Agerskov Avisen was that a cow (of the four legged kind of course) had run away and was last seen strolling around in the village for the language, don't even think of going there. Nothing beats Danish boredom.
