Nobody knows how long a life can be or how short ? Term limits allow for peaceful retirements and quiet peaceful transitions of power .
Interesting times ?

Imagine the peasants thinking that should have any say in the choice of Head of State ?

Funny story, but is such a thing even possible? 47 hours, maybe, but surely not 47 days.

The police, frustrated by the lack of movement in the case and in the suspect, were forced to release him on "medical and legal advice".
