Greeks Seizin' Cars

The EU ain't all that happy with Greece these days. It seems that they're seizing cars of visitors and leveling some some seriously preposterous fines. In short, seems to us (and bear in mind our grasp of Greece's place in the geopolitical spectrum dates back to roughly 'round the time Socrates quaffed the hemlock), that Greece wants all of the benefits of EU-ness, while being able to go its own way. And the whole thing brings to mind the punch line of the old off-color joke about the girl who marries the Greek man: "But mom! What if I wanna have babies?" [Thanks to Conor for the tip.]
