    Yeah, interesting. Just how long does it take the wire services to get a story from Europe to us here?

    Once Sunday, March 15, a few years ago, it was my 'job' to annouce visitors in our department and extend them welcome. One woman had brought a neighbor of hers, Mark Anthony. That was about the best setup I ever had for that chore. I said, "We're glad to have Mark Anthony with us here, just in time for the Ides of March."

    A treacherous assasination that we know about mostly from the tragedy of William Shakespeare called "Julius Caesar." Fascinating reading. But did this event change the course of history? I don't think so.
