Deafening silence!

Post by cwconrad » November 11th, 2014, 7:53 am

What a quiet weekend: no post since 10/09/14. Nor can we say, I suspect, as did Cicero to
Catiline, "Dum tacent, clamant. And today? "In Flanders fields the poppies blow ... "

οὔτοι ἀπ’ ἀρχῆς πάντα θεοὶ θνητοῖς ὑπέδειξαν,
ἀλλὰ χρόνῳ ζητέοντες ἐφευρίσκουσιν ἄμεινον. (Xenophanes, Fragment 16)
