Corruption Crackdown in Greece

Hosted by

The financial crisis in Greece now ranges from the tragic to the ridiculous. Austerity measures in that country took a sad toll today when an elderly man whose pension had been reduced shot himself to death in front of the parliament house in Athens. His suicide note said he wanted to die with dignity before he had to search for food in the trash. But another side to the story is rampant corruption. Consider Zakynthos, now known as "the Island of the Blind," as we hear from James Angelos, reporting for the Wall Street Journal.
