Final Note

Belgium has a new prime minister

Kai Ryssdal Dec 6, 2011

This final note on the way out. After a record 541 days without a government, a new prime minister of Belgium was sworn in today. Now, it’s not like Belgium’s an economic powerhouse, but I’m obliged to note the Belgian economy didn’t collapse without politicians running things.

Just sayin’.
