image for Americans growing impatient with euro's slow collapse, need it to happen now
Seth Camper recalls the days when $600 bought you a cool million Italian lire

HARFOLD, Vt. - After reading for weeks that the euro promises to collapse, Americans in northern Vermont are growing impatient, unable to make a decision as to whether they'll travel to Europe in 2012.

"I need that sucker to go one-to-one," said Seth Camper. "I read the papers daily to look for some sign that things are going back to 2003 when we got a euro for a buck."

Harfold State College adjunct instructor, Randy Wellers, who teaches a class called "Introduction to Business", thinks that Europe's movers and shakers will continue to conspire against the U.S. "As soon as Merkel and Sarkozy open their mouths about getting the debt under control and other austerity measures, suddenly the euro is rock solid again and we Americans are paying through the nose for a cup of coffee in a Parisian café.

"The fact that we don't make it a law that we always get more than one unit of foreign currency for each dollar, well it just doesn't make good economic sense."
