  1. Greece has been a country with a permanent generation, fifteen to thirty-five, of spoiled brats since the mid-seventies. “Students” are always staging sit-ins and school strikes, twice or three times a year. Its labor base is Albanian immigrants which is a good thing because no young Greek thinks he has any obligation to earn his own daily bread.

    As for its politicians … think of the governor, played by Mel Brooks, in Blazing Saddles.
