As I drove home from our Maine vacation I had the chance to listen to the radio as various voices discussed the Greek issue. Listening to the lengths to which Athens has gone to debate what is essentially an easy binary decision has given me renewed pity for Leonides and the men who waited in vain at Thermopolye for Athens to end debate and come to their aid in defending Greece.

What I don't understand is, who would loan Greece any money at all? Why?

Does that mean that 4 out of every 5 Greeks end up in jail alongside Golden Dawn? The Greeks should learn about the finer aspects of partying from the loons that do it best...Greek Fraternities!
