Santiago Jones, Criminal Activity Columnist for The Olympian

As you may know, Zeus's daughter, Persephone has been captured by his brother, Hades, ruler of the underworld. At this point, he has expressed that he is unwilling to let Persephone leave. Her mother, Demeter, goddess of agriculture, is very unhappy with the situation. She has caused crops all over the mortal world to begin to wither and die. Many mortals are starving due to this lack of food. Here to talk about this situation, I have with me none other than the legendary: Zeus!

Olympian: So, word has it that you and Hermes are trying to sort out this whole ordeal with Hades. Can you tell us more?

Zeus: Well, I can't give away too many details, but I can say that this incident will most likely be over soon.

O: Has anyone else been helping you to try to get her back?

Z: Well, all of the media coverage has certainly put pressure on him to release her, which we think is helping the situation enormously.

O: Did you ever expect something like this would happen with Hades?

Z: Yes, I did. Being the lord of the underworld, he could do whatever he wanted with anyone who died, and I think that freedom has lead him to believe that he can do whatever he wants. He needs to learn his lesson that things like this just aren't OK.

O: Well, thanks for stopping by the office!

Z: No problem

The Olympian will make sure to keep you posted on any exciting new developments on this story. For now, I am Santiago Jones, and thank you for reading.
