There were other things I'd intended to post, but seeing as it's nearly 6AM and I'm still up (I was studying Greek, honest!), I figure I'll just stick with this.
It looks like Cambridge Schools Classics Project
will be beaming up Latin to inquiring minds who wouldn't otherwise have a Latin teacher. That's kinda cool, and yet, real in-the-classroom teachers are cooler.
I like that somebody's trying, though. And I like that the demand is actually higher than the supply of Latin teachers (or so it would seem? Or maybe it's just that Latin teachers aren't affordable. hm). Anyway, Latin is being
forced down the throats of poor, unsuspecting young students
spread far and wide, and that makes me happy.
You see, if I ever have a child I shall
corrupt it with Latin at an early age. Thus, hopefully, it will be saved the pain of figuring it out at a later age (because any child of mine would just naturally
regret not learning Latin earlier :-P). Of course, it would probably cringe at horrible grammar mistakes at an even earlier age and be even more of a pain in the ass than its mother. In short, it might not be saved any pain at all. hm. Oh well!
