Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I just wanted to admit that I chose option 4 in the poll because being a smug, cheese eating, cafe sitting, socialist who doesn't work a full 40 hours a week is actually a very good thing. And I am damned proud to be one even if fate has put me temporarily on the wrong side of the pond. As for hiding from reality, that may be an under-rated activity.

Do not feel safe. The poet remembers.

Agreed.  In which case, I have "my own private Europe" going on here in the US.
