Quote of the day
In Latin, even. I found this while browsing the Oxford Companion to Classical Literature, as I am wont to do:
Ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant. (When they create a desolation, they call it peace.)(I don't suppose he was actually speaking Latin; but that's how Tacitus recorded it.)
Just kinda stuck in my mind, with all those bomb-'em-and-leave-'em wars we've been having...
(The Caledonians lost, by the way.)
