    I guess if they’re at the bar drinking coffee (not wine? what kind of Italians are they, really??) at least they’re not getting in the way and doing harm to the Vespa traffic – but that kind of Italianate patronage-job goes all the way back to Caesar. You should (try to, or not) read up on the freaking insane Legal Code they have with, the “right” to pick (peaches/oranges/apples/you-name-it) on your *neighbors* property/trees, the “right” to trespass – all kinds of strange “rights” things, if they were done more than once (practically) become a defensible “tradition.”

    so they’re making ~$14/hr. to sit on their asses and do a job that doesn’t even need doing?

    Ah, this is government, so that’s a feature not a bug.

    Yet our Treasury is going to Bailout the Euros so that these people can still get their Free Cheese.
