Will Greece leave the Eurozone? Will Spain and Italy default on their loans? The Old Soldier is working-class and retired, but these are not idle questions for me or other Americans.
The global banking system is so tightly integrated that a European financial collapse will have a definite negative impact on the US. How much of an impact? Nobody knows.
Keep your eyes on the situation.
Hello, all my fans in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and North and South America. Enough of this gloom and doom.
It’s Friday and you know what that means. The Old Soldier will be presenting his performance art (karaoke) at Del’s in Bloomfield (Pittsburgh’s Little Italy) tonight.
Karaoke gets the Old Soldier out of the house.
And I tell you what else will be getting the Old Soldier out of the house: The Big Idea Bookstore. It’s just a few blocks from my apartment. I’ve decided to become more involved in the store since it is carrying my only published book and because it is a cooperative which means it is owned by the workers.
The store is very involved with the community. It shows low-budget films. It has readings and it’s a cafe, too. The Old Soldier has found another place to hang out.
You can’t beat that with a stick!
