I bet there will be ether a giant effort to place the EU dirt under the rug during the Thanksgiving weekend. That or huge degree of EU dirt will suddenly appear. I mean it started a year ago with Dubai, it's about time the sovereign crisis went full cycle and .. it's a wonderful time of the year....
