Everybody must(n't) get stoned ...

Back on the campus again (as well as the Campus, which I guess is pretty obvious) to take care of a few chores and find out why my final paper was "both stimulating and infuriating."

Wasting time between chores I stumbled upon the following from a review of Perseus written by the Rip:

"Perseus offers two features not otherwise available: a database of Greek texts in English; a morphological analysis program. For either of these to be research tools, we must imagine scholars not able to read Greek, a prospect that turns my heart to stone."

Which supports my decision to spend much of the summer on Hesiod and Thucydides. Wish me luck.
