Re: American professor denied Swiss citizenship

He was/is a member of a tennis club and a sailing club. Both "elitist" sports.

He should have joined the Mannerriege, Mens Choir, Shooting club, Spitex, been a volunteer Fireman, and owned his own chair at the local Stammtisch, and played regular Jass (and drunk beer and local wines) . He failed to learn what is important in becomming a Swiss!

My neighbor is also a retired ETH professor, and if he wasn`t a born and bred Swiss, he`d fail the test. For sure!
