Dagmar Lamp: halva keha päev
Mõnel päeval ei tunne end lihtsalt enda kehas hästi. Käsivarred tunduvad paksemad kui peaümbermõõt, kõht tundub sisaldavat endas vähemalt kolmikuid ning jooksma minnes ei taha jalad koostööd teha ning valutavad nagu vanakuradid.

Editorial: the manifold lessons of an insult scandal
By finance minister Jürgen Ligi stepping down due to a social media message, a new layer was added to Estonian political culture. The effect of the layer on long term values, time will tell.

Editorial: cabinet cadre’s irksome irresponsibility
Entering into office, a member of Estonian government vows to bear responsibility before the state and own conscience. Meaning, an executive politician carries a greater weight. A politician may shame his party and himself; a minister will smear the government and the state. However strong-worded, a minister can’t just afford to blurt it out – in whatever media.
