"The Government Has Collapsed"

can have very different meanings. The goal of many emerging parliamentary democracies, I think, is for citizens to be able to say "The government has collapsed. Now, which movie do you want to go see tomorrow?," rather than "The government has collapsed; what street are the tanks coming down?" (or even "The government has collapsed; those 100,000 protesters on the main square did a great job").

I much hope that the Estonian government's collapse is of the (say) modern Western European variety. UPDATE: PubliusPundit says it is.

Thanks to InstaPundit for the pointer.
