Last night Mr S. and I were laying in bed talking about the world.

I started with - did you hear that the doctors lawyers and judges haven't been paid in months in Greece? So they are striking. He sort of looks at me nonplussed.

I continue on. Why do they continue to go to work if they aren't getting paid? It's weird, because when I was growing up, people in the Soviet Union people kept going to work even though they weren't getting paid too. And I could never understand it. Greece is starting to feel like that.

Mr S. - well I assume they are looting the place.

Me - Yeah, but when does that whole thing stop? It's just weird they keep showing up.

Mr S. - I assume it stops when there is nothing left to loot.
