"Beware of Greeks burning thrifts"
--Mary Anastasia O'Grady in today's WSJ.
“The situation was already starting to get worse on Thursday afternoon and throughout Friday of the week before last, a number of markets were no longer functioning correctly."
--Feckless ECB president J. C. Trichet as quoted by Tyler this morning.
Mary O's is astoundingly clever. I apparently have underrated her.
J.C.'s is funnier but scarier. He sees not lending to broke-ass governments = not functioning correctly.
