Off to Greece, and an Update on our Athens Fund

The Only Good Deal For Greece Is NO Deal

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Ben Shahn Sideshow, county fair, central Ohio 1938 The only thing that would really go towards beginning to solve the problems with Greece is for Athens to NOT sign a deal.

It’s mitigating that pain which should now be our priority

Update: Automatic Earth for Athens Fund

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Marion Post Wolcott Main Street. Sheridan, Wyoming 1941 Just about exactly three days ago, I wrote an article telling you that I will be going to Athens next week: The Automatic Earth Moves To Athens.

The reactions to that fund drive have been amazing in more ways than one. But first,
