    A friend of mind, a Christian minister who studied a bible school here in Dallas, sent me this question. Hi Nityananda, I was reading a book on ethics and was wondering what you might think of one of its ideas ("After Virtue" by Alasdair MacIntyre). He talks about a threefold scheme for thinking about ethics/virtue/character: - A humanity that exists in a somewhat lower state (greed, etc.) - A humanity that progresses to realizing the goals of humanity (mature, humility, sacrifice...

You'll need to scroll down until you get to "A Trip to Greece, January 2007 ". Here's an excerpt: Tiropitakia, little cheese pies, come in many shapes and sizes here in Greece.
