I don't want to name names... but he's a Chancellor of Germany whose intials are the same as Gilbert and Sullivan.

I'm gonna miss Gerhard Schroeder if this Reuters report is true and he's headed out of the political fray. Who else gives good quote like this re: the consequences of neo-liberalism:
"I do not want to name any catastrophes where you can see what happens if organised state action is absent. I could name countries, but the position I still hold forbids it, but everyone knows I mean America," he said to loud applause.
I don't know if it's Reuters' translator that makes that funny or if it's just as funny in German. Either way, auf Wiedersehen Schroeder!
