I vote for John Saltas as Best Greek Jackass [“Gifted Greeks,” Private Eye, March 31, City Weekly]. Greek this. Greek that. He needs to move to grease and get over it.
He doesn’t know about Great Greeks, anyway. How could he forget Greeks like those at Grove Market? They serve the best sandwiches on Earth. Or the Outpost Sports Cafe as Best Friendly Café? Presto Print as Best Printers? Where was Nicholas & Co. as Best Food-Service Provider, period? Prompt Cleaners as Best Car Wash & Laundry? Best Photographer: George Karahalios’ GP Photography? Best Photo Lab: Nichols Photo? And leaving off Kessimakis Produce? Saltas should choke on a grape.
And what about Utah’s Greatest Greeks, like Nolan Karras or Fred Lampropoulous of Merit Medical (both of whom ran for governor)? What’s Saltas got against Mormon Greeks? [Editor’s note: Nothing. His brother was an LDS bishop.] Or is it Greek Republicans? [Editor’s note: Yes! That’s against God’s law.] He even forget the Best Sorority: Pi Beta Phi.
Do yourself a favor, City Weekly. Don’t let Saltas anywhere near your offices unless it’s to pay a bar tab.
