Thought for the Day (so to speak)
Jan Strupczewski has been covering the stalemate in negotiations between Greece and the European Union (EU) over the next stage in financing its debt. Things have now progressed to a point where one encounters the noun “default” in these dispatches. This led to a quote on this matter from one unnamed EU official that was too good to resist:

I think I shall need a strong cup of Greek coffee before trying to process that!
