Still a Longshot
The oldest resident of the Czech Republic, aged 108, wondered what the holdup is. She told reporters, "I can't understand what is taking them so long."
I just say, with a bit of typical self deference, "Government? Ha, that's been a mistake like Brno since the whole thing began." (One saying, I've been told, no doubt started by jealous Praguers, is to compare anything you don't like to a "mistake like Brno," in other words implying that Brno was not worth it to begin with. Perhaps someday I'll have a better explanation for this little quip.)
**NvB Update: Anonymous commenter chimes in that the saying about Brno indicates that something is "big" rather than "bad." And I guess, relatively speaking, that Brno is pretty "big" for a "small" city.**
