Italy's Prime Minister is set to resign. This is a man who has been under various scandals nonstop for the last decade and had shown no indication of resigning, mostly because he controlled the courts.
You know what he can't control, though? The laws of mathematics. Italy, like all of the other welfare states, is going under.
So Berlusconi's abandoning the ship. If things have gotten so bad that this crazy bastard is giving up power, we may want to stock up on canned goods and shotguns.
