  • A Hellenic Case Against Hillary

    A Hellenic Case Against Hillary by Theodore G. Karakostas The following critique is not motivated by partisanship. I am a critic of the anti-Hellenic and anti-Orthodox policies of both major political parties. However, the focus now is Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. In 1992, then Presidential Candidate Bill Clinton promised the Greek-American community he would not recognize Skopje with the name Macedonia. In 1994, the Clinton administration broke its promise and subsequently recognized Skopje under the Hellenic name of Macedonia. The Clinton administration subsequently tried to pressure Athens to lift the embargo that had been justifiably imposed by Greece...

     Subscribe for free at Archaeological Discovery in Bulgaria Clue to Ancient Mystery2003-02-13Bulgarian archaeologists discovered an oval ritual hall fitting the description that ancient historians gave to the Dionysus Temple in the Rhodope range famous for its splendor and mysteriousness in antique times and for the many failed attempts to determine its exact location in modernity. During an expedition in 2002, the team of archeologist Nikolay Ovcharov unearthed the hall inside of an ancient Thracian palace, some 250km southeast of Bulgaria's capital Sofia. The temple-palace is part of the dead city of Perpericon in Bulgaria's Eastern Rhodope Mountain that...

    Curing the incuriosity of the East... by Greg Swann Intrepid weblogger Billy Beck pointed me to this 'Why Do They Hate Us?' piece by John Derbyshire in The New Criterion. I think Derbyshire was padding his thesis to a pre-set length; the article is long, rambling and unfocused. Funny in places, though. Like this: Try to imagine that your own notion of life in the United States was constructed entirely from American movies and TV programs. You would perceive my country as being inhabited by a mix of gigantic, steroid-enhanced basketball stars, exquisitely beautiful young people with perfect teeth and musculature,...
  • Colloquy with a goat

    Colloquy with a goat by Greg Swann A she-goat called Ana McDonald came in from the pasture to bleat in the San Antonio Express-News. Her crooked little thesis is straightforward enough: Since quibbling moral equivalizing about ancient apocrypha is faring so poorly--what with dangerous ideologues actually reading the Koran and studying the history of Islam--inventing more contemporary quibbling moral equivalizations might work better. But no mere craven propagandigoat is Ana McDonald. Not content to pull the wool over the eyes of San Antonians, she knits her yarn with synthetic cashmere: It's not just that antique Westerners were even worse than their Islamic...
