Captian Kook is aboard!

And I couldn't be more excited.

I'm so excited that I'll actually post today. And here it is ...

I was reading Cicero's First Catilinarian just now and I came across a line that I thought rocked:

"ubinam gentium sumus? in qua urbe uiuimus? quam rem publicam habemus?"

It reminded me of a line in Churchill's speech following Pearl Harbor:

"What kind of a people do they think we are?"

The story goes that people rose to their feet and applauded for five minute. Now that's what I call oratory.
