It is difficult to maintain such quietude when you read opinions which are plainly founded on ignorance. A letter to the Bangkok Post last week was vitriolic in its criticism of a cartoonist who had drawn a map of Europe with the initial letters of the countries Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain so organised as to spell out the word PIGS. "How Rude!", screeched the ill-educated epistler, "These countries have noble and honourable histories, theirs are among the great civilisations of the world. And your cartoonist ignorantly refers to them as pigs!" Oh, the ignorance of the man. Does he only read cartoons? A cursory glance at the news pages for the past year would have assured him that the acronym PIGS has become universally accepted as standing for those countries whose finances are in such a dire strait that they are threatening to bankrupt the whole of the Eurozone.
