Better you than me

I started listening to BBC World online today, and some discussion of the pitfalls in the Swiss economy caused the interview subject to refer to a sense of schadenfreude that Germans and other Europeans may now be feeling towards Switzerland. And I took a special delight in hearing it. I am quite fond of that word, as loathesome as its meaning may be in the Western ethical construct. One does not hear it being used enough. Except perhaps by me.
