Faith? Good to be human, still.
Today in the early morning hours one of austria’s most famous politicians died. Jörg Haider, well known for his extreme views, almost childish actions (like moving town’s name signs around in an act of protest), had a lethal car accident.
Now I’m not into politics. And I’m certainly not into Jörg Haider’s way of politics. I never liked his views, his actions and their impact on the world’s opinion about our country. He made austria look bad, or at least weird. But he was there, and to be dealt with, and over the years with his vanishing and uprising and all that stuff he kind of got the one famous joke of our political scene.
Anyways, after all the above I have to say that these news were shocking. The picture of his wrecked car. His left woman and children. He may not have been the most beloved politician, but I guess there’s a lot of “Haider is a jerk”-people, just like me, out there who now feel bad for what happened. It’s just wrong if someone dies unexpectedly.
