It's not that you offended anyone. It's just that we hear all this talk day in and day out about trying to promote a society that sees no race or color, but it's my opinion that casual comments like this that go against that effort even moreso than outburst like the one from Michael Richards the other day.

You have the right to say stuff like this, so I'm not trying to be the PC police or anything. It's just that impressionable people will read your thread title, read the article, then remember that a Greek guy swindled a bunch of people, and they won't think twice about it because it was so subtle. Sure, they may make the connection on their own by reading the article, and there's nothing you can do about that. But why do anything to increase the odds that they come out of that story with more than just the memory of a bad guy who did a bad thing?

Good read. Lengthy, but good.

I'm 1/2 Greek also. . . shocked he's not from Astoria.

This thread needs a little Windex... :-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

This takes me back to my childhood.
