In tribute to this thread I can think of no better lines than these by Shakespeare:
|"Friends, Romans, Countryman, lend me your ears; I come to bury Caesar not to|
praise him. The evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with
their bones; so let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus hath told you Caesar was
ambitious. If it were so, it was a grevious fault, and greviously hath Caesar
answered it. Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest(For Brutus is an honorable
man as are they all, all honerable men)come I to Caesar's funeral.He was my
friend, faithful and just to me; but Brutus says he was ambitious, and Brutus is
an honorable man. He hath brought many captives home to Rome whose ransomes did
the general coffers fill; did this in Caesar seem ambitious? When the poor have
cried, Caesar hath wep; Ambition should be made of sterner stuff. Yet Brutus
says he was ambitious; and Brutus is an honorable man.You all did see that on
Lupercal I thrice presented him a kingly crown, which he did thrice refuse. Was
this ambition? Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; and sure he is an honorable
man. I speak not to disprove what Brutus spoke, but here I am to speak what I
do know. You all did love him once, not without cause; what cause withholds you
then to mourn for him? O judgement thou art fled to Brutish beasts, and men hath
lost their reason! Bear with me; my heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,
and i must pause till it come back to me."

FTK: I Didn't answer your questions because it beats the hell out of me.
PaV: I suppose for me to be pried away from what I do to focus long and hard on that particular problem would take, quite honestly, hundreds of thousands of dollars to begin to pique my interest.
