     I don't doubt that.  No system is perfect.  I've heard horror
stories from the US also.  No doubt Canadians, Britons, etc. have them
also.  Romania's system may very well suck.

     My problem is people who make statements like "Our system is the
best because government is always inefficient", or "We have the best
system in the world", without actually looking at any data, or at best
relying on anecdotal evidence.
