A Child's Perspective on the European Crisis

Following Dave’s lead and apropos to Jonathan Zasloff’s commentary at Legal Planet on UCLA's tobacco ban, here is a funny tidbit from my 6 year old daughter.

As we drove to school a couple days ago, we were listening to an NPR story about the economy.  The reporter was summing up the situations of various regions of the world.  As to Europe, the reporter said something like “Europe doesn’t look great either.”

Now my daughter knows a thing or two about Europe.  We lived in Spain last year for 6 months.  From the backseat, she speaks up in a very deliberate and confident voice:

“Of course Europe doesn’t look great -– there are cigarettes all over the ground!”
