Oh c'mon everybody agrees that police attack was unwarranted. Many
people won't vote for the currently governing CDU party next March due
to that embarrassment and so be it.

It's an awful building. And I'm totally *pro* the destruction.

Oh c'mon there will be many more hundred trees due to the railways going
into tunnel -- it's approximately 100 hectares for the new trees. Yes it
is needed to kill "several hundred healthy mature trees" first, in order
to build the underground station, and so be it.

"Als Durchgangsbahnhof bezeichnet man einen Bahnhof, der den
Eisenbahnbetrieb aus zwei Richtungen zulässt. Diese Bauform hat sich
trotz ihrer teilweise problematischen Integration in die Infrastruktur
der an ihr befindlichen Städte als die bessere herausgestellt, da das
umfangreiche Gleisfeld der Kopfbahnhöfe entfallen kann. "

In all the years when I travelled to Stuttgart by train I always used
S-Bahn so your claim doesn't scare me.
