Shanghai, Greece, Orwell and other matters

Just the other day Shanghai was at 5132. It touched 4139 yesterday. Oops! Meanwhile, Greece has a referendum scheduled for July 5 but an IMF payment due on Tuesday. Oops! In news closer to home, this paragraph had us thinking about Orwell. Orwell, BTW, would not be invited to give commencement addresses today. The world is a tough place, but let’s not notice that, ok? Let’s have tenure and fluffy thoughts; those mean people are far away, aren’t they? As we say almost every day now, this will not end well. (Ah, yes.) HT: AT

    The bank runs in Greece are beginning already. Hardly a surprise. Some people are speculating that some Greek banks won’t open Monday.
