Ball point pen on todays newsprint

The first step in solving a crisis is to admit one exists and then spell it out in all it's ugly detail. The newly elected Prime Minister of Greece, George Papandreou admitted that not only was the Greek deficit twice as high as previously reported, but his country's finances were also a mess, corruption was pervasive and tax evasion, rampant. Refreshing to have a leader not resort to jingoism.
