Moving forward becomes our only option

Underlying the question of whether European leaders and the Greek state will be able to come to terms amid the financial crisis is one even more fundamental: Is there room in Europe for democracy?

‘Family Guy’ Actor Patrick Warburton Has No Problem Turning Off The Show When It’s ‘Too Sacrilegious’
“Family Guy” is notorious for its searing satire and no-holds-barred pop culture jabs, but even Patrick Warburton, who voices the paraplegic police officer Joe Swanson on the show, thinks its humor can sometimes cross the line. While Warburton’s mother — a Parents Television Council member — has been especially outspoken about the long-running Fox cartoon in the past, Warburton said he is generally “okay with everything” on the show. But there was one particular joke that struck a nerve with the actor, he said in a Friday interview with HuffPost Live.

Neither side has shown any sign of yielding, with creditors insisting it is up to Greece to make concessions to secure a cash-for-reforms deal so the government can honor looming debt repayments and avoid a potentially disastrous default.

(Adds details) PARIS, June 12 (Reuters) – France’s data protection regulator ordered Google to remove information from all versions of its website, not just in Europe, when it grants users’ requests to scrub search results for their names under the so-called “right to be forgotten.” If the company does not comply in 15 days, the CNIL can open a sanctions process, it said in a statement on Friday. The move ratchets up the pressure on Google a year after the European Court of Justice gave residents the ability to ask search engines to delete results that turn up under a search of their name when they were out of date, irrelevant or inflammatory. Since then, Google and other search engines such as Microsoft’s Bing and Yahoo have begun to grant de-listing requests when they meet certain criteria.
