Subject: Maria Callas

 George's interesting recollection of Maria Callas is doubly interesting in 
that he mentions that his friend's name was Homer,  and Callas told him it 
was a Greek name  (see below).

In Nicholas Cage's often fanciful book about the relationship between Callas 
and Onassis  (I shall not promote it further by naming it)  the author 
declares that Callas had a son by Onassis - on page 206 there is a photo of 
a tragic little (dead?)  child that the author attributes to Maria and 
Ari -- and the baby's name was Omero -- Homer.  Cage claims that the child 
died shortly after birth,  March 30, 1960.

George -- did you note tears in Maria's eyes when she heard the name Homer 
and declared that it was a Greek name?    Wouldn't any mother show a bit of 
emotion at such a moment?
