Denver Hellas! Meet Zorba the Geek!

OOooooPPPah! Winfrey!
Getting all Hellenic for Thusday now that Mount Obama is featuring a Greek Temple! You can NOT make this stuff up!


"All of them, my son. It's a great sin to say this is good and that is bad." -- "Why? Can't we make a choice?" -- "No, of course we can't.". . . The aim of man and matter is to create joy, according to Zorba – others would say ‘to create spirit,’ but that comes to the same thing on another plane. But why? With what object? And when the body dissolves, does anything at all remain of what we have called the soul? Or does nothing remain, and does our unquenchable desire for immortality spring, not from the fact that we are immortal, but from the fact that during the short span of our life we are in the service of something immortal?
N. Kazantzakis speaking through Alexi Zorba - Zorba the Greek

'I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby.'
Barack Obama the Doric God of Denver is Zorba the Geek!
