Pasztet i kawa
When I was at TaizÃ© 2 years ago, there was a Polish girl there; I think her name is a Polish diminutive of “Anna”. She kept eating cookies at the reception. I said to her: “you do not look like someone who had eaten a lot of cookies”, and she said “thank you”. She was studying law, would like to be a lawyer in the European Commission, and was upset that the proposed European constitution did not include a reference to God in the preamble. On this note, His Holiness John Paul II wrote Ecclesia in Europa.
If you thought George and Jeb were dodgy, check out the twin president–prime minister combo in Poland. I am not sure how happy I would be about this if I were a SolidarnoÅ›Ä‡ member (and I would likely have been one, had I been Polish at that juncture). (But then, Bulgaria had an ex-king for a prime minister until last year.)
The Guardian‘s “tabloid” G2 section today is called Specjalny Polski G2. The Oxonian historian Norman Davies wrote several books on Poland. Our friends Stale Urine had a Polish anthem in their Fourteen Points.
