  1. I’m not sure if Greece celebrates the Fourth of July. If so, happy holidays Vassilis! If not, feel free to ignore. 🙂

  2. No Jeff, no celebrations and I guess it has become more of a tradition than a living thing in the US. But it was mostly a reference to the beautiful song by the young and not-yet famous Bruce Springsteen, 4th of July, Asbury Park, Sandy where amongst other wonderful pictures painted with lyrics, I really adore this one: ” Did you hear the cops finally busted Madame Marie for tellin’ fortunes better than they do “. It is like describing the death of the american dream, or in reality-since there is no american dream- the waking up from adolescence to adulthood through this painful procedure of understanding.

    But the mind works in mysterious ways. Last week a young boy made the drafts in NBA, at 15th place. He was a young boy with both parents from Nigeria, that basketball really saved him. His talent gave him the Greek citizenship, where other kids fail to get it. Although he was born here and had Greek education and he feels Greek, but according to the law all kids with illegal immigrant parents should be send back to the country of origin! A place he/she has never been, ever in his life! And this abomination of a law has a strong supporter in the face of our current prime minister, who invited the boy with his family for an official meeting! I guess, to she the dream come true. Maybe he should devote some time to listen to the cries and worries of people.

  3. I guess immigrants make good scapegoats like in America. Here, families are separated from one another indefinitely for the crime of being born in a certain latitude and longitude. Best to you and the people of Greece. The media in the U.S. has little to say about European austerity. Too busy talking about the Kim/Kanye baby, I guess.
