    The story of Odysseus sailing between Scylla and Charybdis- the original “rock and a hard place”- makes for a great political cartoon metaphor. I think it’s particularly apt in this instance with the European Union( the sailors) complaining that Greece (Odysseus) has once again put them in a bad spot.
    The option of sailing close to Scylla (bailouts for Greece) and doing harm to some of the crew - Germany in particular- or being sucked into Charybdis (the Greek Default whirlpool) and likely losing everything is the choice Odysseus made. It appears the EU will make that choice as well.

    Unfortunately, I doubt neither Scylla OR Charybdis will go hungry.

    But Greeks have great food! Columbia’s Greek Orthodox Food Festival is THE event I look forward to each year.
