You can still see a genuine Greek fishing village in this city where nearly one-third the population is of Greek heritage.But in Tarpon Springs, on Florida's west coast, the old ambience is being replaced by gaudy shops with plastic trinkets and hawkers waving menus in front of restaurants. Tacky T-shirts are everywhere.What's left of the Tarpon Springs that Greek sponge divers made famous early this century can be seen in the few remaining Greek coffee shops, where old men sit late at night playing cards, and at Zorba's, a nightclub where young Greek women take to the dance floor and move like liquid silk, as the bouzoukis blare.

Sept. 4) , why hasn't the editorial board taken a similar position on other parts of the world where hundreds of thousands of civilians have been brutally slaughtered? Your political imperative is obvious in your rationale for war. I trust that Congress will have more courage. Barry Banther, Tarpon Springs, Fla.
