Helo, the Gentleman

Here’s a brain-spinner: in Greek, the phrase Kalos Kai Agathos, or its shortened form, Kalos K’Agathos, means essentially “gentleman.” Kalos means “beautiful,” Kai means “and,” and Agathos means “good.” Beautiful and good = gentleman.

Killing Billy was not cool.

Ok I’m signing in to say that killing Billy was not cool. I understand nothing is sacred in the Battlestar universeand some things get out of hand, much like life. However Billy was one of the good guys and we hate to see him go.
