Dear Editor: The ancient Romans learned a lot from Greece. Today's American can learn a lot from modern Greece.
Over the last 40 years, the citizens of Greece sought and accepted the care, control and generosity of their government. And the money was borrowed money. Over time the people have become parasites rather than providers.
If a bank account has more withdrawals than deposits, then, at some point, the checks do not clear. This is reality, whether it is the account of a Ph.D, a dropout or a government.
Greece (and Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Italy) had a head start of several years, but America is traveling the very same road to the very same destination.
And how is Greece now facing up to their problem? The Public Employees Union called a general strike. That ought to fix it.
