More Greek News

Yesterday was voting day for the new government in Greece, all Greeks over the age of 18 have voted.  Not like the US were you vote if you want to or you can just skip it, here it is mandatory.
But in typical Greek fashion, there was no ONE winner, instead the guy who got the top votes will probably make a coalition government with the 2nd, 3rd and possibly the 4th place winners.  Unless if you go the route of the communist party, and that would be a re-vote, of course they are just asking for that for 2 reasons: they came in 5th and they always like to be contrary to whatever the rest of the government is saying.  So once again wishing the best of luck to the future of Greece.

The Wall Street Journal said Greeks voted for chaos.. Sounds about right to me.

Too true, the second place winner would like to exit the euro, I think that would most definitely create chaos!
