Cranky About the Olympics

I grew up in a neighborhood with a ton of kids. There were four Morrison children, four Murphys, two O’Connors, four (or five?) Finnerans, at least five and maybe seven Sullivans, and ten Fitzpatricks. You can tell by the names and numbers it was an Irish Catholic neighborhood, and I was the lone Greek kid. (I explore my Greek roots with Dmitri, the character I wrote in The Girl on the Ferris Whee
