For the Internet-Deprived, McDonald's Is Study Hall

wsj.com — CITRONELLE, Ala.- Joshua Edwards's eighth-grade paper about the Black Plague came with a McDouble and fries. Joshua sometimes does his homework at a McDonald's restaurant-not because he is drawn by the burgers, but because the fast-food chain is one of the few places in this southern Alabama city of 4,000 where he can get online access free once the public library closes.

Angela Merkel Facing Criticism Over Handling of Greek Crisis

wsj.com — BERLIN-Europe's standoff with Greece has thrown German Chancellor Angela Merkel into one of the deepest domestic political crises of her 10-year tenure. This coming week, things may well get much worse. The Social Democrats, the conservative chancellor's left-of-center junior governing partners, are increasingly criticizing Ms. Merkel and her finance minister, Wolfgang Schäuble, for appearing to be prepared to kick Greece out of the euro at least temporarily.

Germany Keeps Wiggle Room on Greek Debt

wsj.com — BERLIN-For Germany, offering debt relief for Greece isn't a question of yes or no, but how much. Officials in Germany, Greece's biggest creditor, are mindful of a building political backlash here against five years of bailouts for Athens, which local news media and economists increasingly characterize as throwing good money after bad.
