In a rather superficial way, the above news makes me feel nice...
It's a relief to see the majority quashing a violent, intolerant minority. What gives me pause is when I think of how something like this would be handled in my country where freedom of speech is so carefully guarded. I wonder where the fine line is between individual rights and what is best for a free, democratic society. I wonder if these awful people might get away with what they are doing here. Scary.

Looking at the pictures on your link, Nikolas, reminds me that people are the same everywhere. The Greek people look like, well, people. Those pictures could have been taken anywhere. I find it uplifting that we are all connected.

VOA news this morning

"Greek police have arrested five parliament members of a far-right party following allegations that a party activist has killed a leftist musician.

Founding leader of the Golden Dawn party Nikos Michaloliakos, spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris and three other far-right lawmakers were arrested Saturday on charges of belonging to a criminal organization.
More than 10 other party members also were arrested."

I'm just wondering if it's right of me to use a pianoworld thread as a kind of a blog for something that is rather political in nature...

In any case I think that I'm much calmer now (evidently) and things seem to be moving to the right direction, so there's no reason for this thread to stay floating for much longer.

Many many thanks for all the support here and in PMs. And thanks for reading, listening, thinking and posting and all that... I'll try not to post here again with news update.

Nikolas, I sent some information about my couch to a few Greeks I know, and their reactions clearly have led directly to this recent development. I wish I could say I did more than buy a crappy couch, but I'll take all the credit I can get. haha laugh

Glad to hear some of the tensions are easing. I certainly hope the trend continues, for you, for Greece, for the EU, and ultimately (and honestly) potentially for the global economy.

Don't worry about it - it's apparently okay or else the hall monitor would have reported it to the principal and got the thread shut down. Or deleted.

The only thing I'd suggest is that if you feel compelled to do another like it at some time in the future, putting a simple "OT" at the beginning of the subject line shows us that you recognize that it not really the right place, but you need to post it here anyway. After all, people have posted utterly [censored] inane sports [censored] here in the past and got away with it. This thread certainly rises above that kind of thing in terms of worth, IMO.
