    El-Erian is the constant framing of the story as profligate citizens of profligate countries. Greece's $12k a year bureaucrats were not out partying. They were on a form of workfare. Greece is a poor country. This wasn't a party. Meanwhile, the countries with similar problems get labeled PIIGS, as though they're really all fat. Meanwhile, we have million dollar a year salaried bankers running their companies into the ground and begging gov'ts to save them, but where is the acronym for that?

    Given all the banks that got themselves in trouble, you'd think an acronym would be pretty easy.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
