Happy New Year!
But I did get a chance to go up to the National Gallery of Art to see such fun things as a costume design for the opera Sapho (I think it was the Massenet, but don't quote me on that) and Cactus Man. Personally, I think Cactus Man should get his own comic.
Anyway, to bring in the new year, I give you (from Classics-L) an article on the reported properties of wine in ancient Greece. Something to think about with the festivities (well, assuming anyone's continuing them!).
