A roundup on the Macedonia-Greece name dispute: Balkan Baby writes that posters in the capital of Macedonia “featuring a customised version of the Greek flag in which the cross […] was replaced with a swastika” did “nothing but shoot Macedonia in the foot”; A Fistful of Euros examines “one of those perfect Balkan storms where you have obnoxious and stupid behavior that leads to even more obnoxious and stupid behavior”; Say: Macedonia pledges to call Greece “‘the Former Macedonian Province of Greece’, or FMPG for short” from now on; Greater Surbiton mocks the Greek Foreign Minister; The Board, a blog written by the New York Times editorial board, notes that “tiny Macedonia doesn’t threaten Greece under any name.”
