We are sorry, Joy. There's an initiative to sell the county Limburg 
where half of the population voted Wilders. If you bid 2 Euro it may be 
yours. I have tried to understand the results of the voting and I think 
it is caused by sloppy people management, what companies call HRM and 
what in France in the 19th and 18th century used to be called 'la 
police'. It will become worse now that it becomes clear that our 
pensions will be reduced because of BP's oil spill, which causes it's 
shares to drop. Shit happens.
