Can ye spare a Euro, mister?

The Irish government evidently capitulated to the European Community yesterday, agreeing to take the bailout that it has been resisting for a week. The price, as everyone knows, is that Ireland must raise its taxes to European Community levels, thus ending the run of the Celtic Tiger. What a pity. (The gent on the left is Ajai Chopra of the International Monetary Fund. Though ready to bail out the nation with other people's money, he doesn't seem to have dropped anything into the beggar's cup.) Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
