INSTAPUNDIT - EUROPE: Emmanuel Macron and the barren elite of a changing continent

One sentence editorial by Glenn Reynolds: Europe has chosen . . . poorly.

From the above linked article I will add this:
But across the continent Macron wants to bind closer together, there’s a stark pattern:


German Chancellor Angela Merkel also has no children. British prime minister Theresa May has no children. Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni has no children. Holland’s Mark Rutte has no children. Sweden’s Stefan Löfven has no biological children. Luxembourg’s Xavier Bettel has no children. Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon has no children. Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, has no children.


This is too remarkable to ignore. While Macron is young—39 years old—the rest of Europe is being governed by childless Baby Boomers.
To which I say it's about time for me to have some children.
