Kudos to Dr. Katsetos for having compiled all this information: far
from being of interest to soccer fans only, Lefter(is)' story
illuminates many sides of the difficult relation between Greece and
Turkey; I can already see a book coming out of this, which will
hopefully answer my questions -- like the relation between his move to
AEK and the 1964 events, for example (this question is obvious, but
not quite touched by the articles below).

For soccer funs: I have no doubt Lefter(is) was thrilled by the
remarkable successes of Turkish soccer in the 2002-2008 interval, but
I do not know how he felt when Muslimovic scored PAOK's 'winning' goal
in overtime against Fenerbahse in August 2010 -- I watched that game
in a hotel room in Cappadocia, I do recall, having skipped our group's
visit to a dervish dance! [Speaking of PAOK, I very recently heard the
story of one of PAOK's founding members who returned to Istanbul
around 1930 -- much like Lefter(is) did in 1967, perhaps...]

Dear Christos, your message made me miss the super market's closing
time 11 hours ago -- you owe me a bottle of ayran now :-)

One monkey remained unaccounted for Wednesday night, but Lutz and
conservationist Jack Hanna, who assisted in the effort, said the
animal may have been eaten by one of the big cats. --
