Zach Bartels is a totally non-revolutionary, plodding, six-line Greco-Roman imperialist who gets his salary and social status from the old way of reading the Bible. He spends most of his time trying to worm his way into the pages of Ted Kluck books. (In this, he has been quite successful). He loves gourmet coffee and listens to NPR.
