Short mental health break

The Economist magazine has an article about the "PIIGS that can't fly." We have all heard of the economic difficulties of Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain. Originally, without Ireland, the acronym was clearer: PIGS.

Don't get me wrong: I love to travel in all those countries.

Still, if Greece is definitively rescued and Ireland (the latecomer) excused, we'll need a new acronym. Could it be, yes I think it is: PIS. As in that classic European statue the Mannekin Pis.

I'm sorry to have been absent for a few days. The rigors of revising the Abrahamica manuscript are about to drive me around the bend.
