Halle crashIn counter-point to my previous post, I was informed today that, sadly, three European Commission officials lost their lives in Monday’s rail crash in Halle. As I earlier reported, two EESC officials were involved. Both survived, though one is still off work with whiplash injuries to the neck. These terrible and completely unforeseen events, like the Liège explosion and the Haiti earthquake, surely give us all cause for thought. Life may be good and it may be bad but it can also be terribly, terribly fickle.
