I WOULDN'T WANT to be this guy right now:
As the head of a once obscure Greek agency churning out government data, Manolis Kontopirakis never sought the limelight that has suddenly come his way, after his country’s financial woes touched off a global storm that threatens to tear the euro zone apart.

But the limelight found him because he has been accused of being the source of faulty figures that more than tripled the country’s budget deficit overnight.
Well, I actually would never want to be this guy, but you get my point. It must not be easy to be in the epicenter of a financial storm.
