Le Deluge

How do you say "oops" in Greek?  The IMF is quickly learning, as they apologized for screwing up in Hellenestan. ευχαριστίες (thanks) for effectively ruining Greece for at least a generation.  And you better learn to say sorry in Castellanos, Portuguese  and Gaelic.  You were wrong on austerity as a means to get out of the crisis, and real people paid for it.

Meanwhile, apres nous, le deluge.  No sooner do I leave Brazil does the country fall into protests over priorities in the face of the World Cup.

Interestingly, if I had been going to YES Iraq, I would have been in Turkey when all of those protests unfolded.
