Thursday cinema & library (updated 1130 pm HST)


2:05 pm (Hawaii) Greece? Problems no more? The last of the protests and riots is past? Maybe. I'm catching up on the news, having kept the TV off all day as I worked. But catch up, I shall. Images of pissed-off Greeks in the streets is one thing. What happens when French banks go down the gutter?

It'll make for great theater someday. By then, it will become gut wrenching for average peons who do their regular work routine, raise their families, only to learn one day soon that their trusted banks are dastardly dirty scumbags. Bottom line is, who pays for all these toxic assets? Who ends up on the streets? It's not a matter of if, but when.
