Editor’s note: Last month Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass was assigned by his editors to visit Greece and Turkey and report on his experiences, a series they dubbed Kass’s “Odyssey.” He interviewed the Ecumenical Patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church, paid a visit to his father’s ancestral homeland of Rizes, went to Athens and Istanbul, and wrote an entire week’s worth of commentary in his page 2 front section column. Last week the Tribune hosted a sold-out public forum where readers joined Kass and editor Gerould Kern to discuss the experience. The Greek Star caught up with John after the post-trip forum and he graciously expounded on a number of related issues of interest to Greece, Greek Americans, Chicagoans, and Americans in general.
