Tanks for the Memories

When Sauron put on the Ring of Power, he was revealed to Celebrimor, and Celebrimor heard him say:

One Euro to rule them all,

One Euro to find them,

One Euro to bring them all,

and in the darkness bind them.

Jon Stewart noted the other night that German banks had done what German tanks had managed 70 years ago, bringing Europe to its knees.

Recent elections seem to indicate that the dominant mood in Europe is now "anyone else but our current government." Voters voted for right wingers and left wingers. Greeks voted for ex-communists and neo-Nazis. Who can doubt that mischief is afoot?
