We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
the only time i pulled an all-nighter in college was to study for an art history exam, trying to memorize all the names, dates, periods, etc of these beautiful pieces of art that i had no appreciation for. what a waste. i would love to take that class again and pay attention this time.
Thanks for the treat, one of my favorites is of Achilles and Ajax(i think) playing dice.
Kab, go to your local library they probably have 1/2 dozen books for just this subject. I was helping a friend figure out a bronze frieze he bought for over the sofa and needed a refresher myself.
