The newspapers react to the situation in Europe

"Walter," Jeffrey said, "tell us, what's happening over there?"

"Naturally, I can't describe it all," Walter said, "but if you could see their faces you would see that it has the inevitable sweep of a Greek tragedy."

Jeffrey was reasonably sure that Walter had never read a Greek tragedy, but Walter was repeating the same endless sort of chant as a chorus from Euripides.
