A milestone of sorts
Unfortunately, my review of The Empire is going to have to wait until tomorrow afternoon. I got called in to work tonight, but I do have it on tape. I did, however, catch the last fifteen minutes, and I can tell you right now that it did not look promising.
I also wanted to remind those of you in the D.C. area about upcoming Classics-related lectures at the Smithsonian:
Saturday, July 9 - The Gnostic Gospels with Dr. Bart D. Ehrman of University of North Carolina.
Tuesday, July 12 - Malta's Temples of Stone Age Genius with Linda Eneix.
Monday, July 11 through Thursday, July 14 - The Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt with Dr. Bob Brier of Long Island University.
