Hoping that reason and vision will prevail

I have found the interviews by Alexis Papachelas of EU Commissioner Olli Rehn and by Tom Ellis of IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn to be most enlightening. Papachelas and Ellis asked difficult questions and Rehn and Strauss-Kahn responded in a positive and forthright manner. The interviews displayed a high level of intellectual discourse without any resort to arrogance or emotional rhetoric. As an American of Greek heritage, I found the interviews to be reassuring in the hope that reason and vision will prevail in the Greek political and journalistic scenes in these difficult times.
