It's been a slow couple of days in the Classics world
Secondly, I wanted to ask you, dear readers, a question. I came across the book The Lake of Dead Languages by Carol Goodman and was wondering if it's worth buying. It involves murders at a school and a woman returning to the school as a Latin teacher. Apparently, Carol Goodman was a Latin major herself and taught it for several years. So has anyone read this? Any thoughts? I may give in and buy it myself, unless someone tells me it's horrible.
Also, I just saw Batman Begins, and there is an interesting claim that Liam Neeson's character makes regarding Rome. I'm not sure I can believe that, but the reference amused me. On the whole, it's an excellent movie, and I would certainly recommend seeing it.
I'd also like to remind everyone about Buy a Friend a Book Week!
Lastly, Father Foster has a new program up. It's actually a couple days old by now, but I don't think I mentioned it earlier. It's about Latin words for modern concepts and how Father Foster wanted to strangle a nun for saying that Latin is dead. Again, how can you not love this man?
Edit: The next installment of The Empire should be tomorrow night (Tuesday) at 9PM EST on ABC. Check your local listings, if you really want to suffer through it.
