The Schleswig-Holstein Question



Clarice Feldman's "Clarice's Pieces" column , Why Is the Mueller Investigation like the Schleswig-Holstein Question? begins with this humorous observation:

"I’ve been muddling through the week’s events respecting the special counsel’s activities, trying to provide a clearer road map. And even harder -- trying to do it in a way that doesn’t make it seem more complicated than need be. A friend reminded me of Lord Palmerston’s observation: “The Schleswig-Holstein question is so complicated, only three men in Europe have ever understood it. One was Prince Albert, who is dead. The second was a German professor who became mad. I am the third and I have forgotten all about it.”

Fortunately Feldman kindly breaks down the Mueller investigation into easily digestible chunks for us to read on this extra long Sunday.

The answer to the Schleswig-Holstein question is "The world is over-populated".
