Green, Green, Green …

This might not be writing news, but I can’t resist. The state of Baden-Wuerttemberg in southern Germany (next to Bavaria) where I live, staunchly conservative and with a Christian-Democratic (CDU) government for the last 58 years, has just voted in the first coalition in Germany that will be headed by the Green party.

This definitely counts as at least a mini-revolution, on a democratic basis. As an aside, voter participation was up in the double digits, and most of it went to the Greens.

I am stunned and amazed and very, very happy.
