A Dutchman's Lament

Michaelgalien Groningen, writing from The Netherlands, is jussssst a bit ticked off at his government and his fellow lowlanders. It appears that Muslim activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali will leave Holland for the USA. Michaelgalien says that's great for her but a great loss for Holland and the whole affair leaves him feeling ill.

Note 1: Michaelgalien is a heck of a name, isn't it? I've never seen the name "Michaelgalien" before. Is it Michaelangelo or Miguel Angel in the Dutch language? I dunno.

Note 2: Why do we Americans say Holland and then The Netherlands and then call the people there the Dutch? I dunno about this either.
