More Us Against Them

Today is the anniversary of the Battle of Thermopylae, where the Spartans and Greeks under the command of King Leonidas had the smack-down laid upon them by the Persians in 480 B.C. If, like me, you sat through the nearly three-dimensional splat and gore of 300 last fall, honor the day by lying in a quiet, darkened room with a glass of chamomile tea and ponder the never-ending quandary of man's inhumanity to man.

It's also the anniversary of the dropping of the atom bomb on Nagasaki, Japan in 1945.

Me, I'm avoiding mushrooms for the rest of the week.
