One of my seminarian friends was at Lepanto (or Nafpaktos as dem Greeks call it) for the feast of the Battle of Lepanto, and sent me this snazzy photograph of the festivities. O'er there, they set fire to a ship, shoot cannons, play loud music, dress in period costume - but surprisingly, my friend went to every gift shop and found nothing commemorating the Battle, not an item with "Lepanto" plastered boldly across it that could be sent to the U.S. for delectation. So I say to all the storekeepers there: 'thhhbbbpppt!'
