For all you Shakespear fans the ides of March is an ominous day (the 15th) when Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times in the Roman Senate after being warned to beware the ides of March on his way to the senate. Many of us still remember having to memorize a lot of Shakespear in high school. Ceasar said “Etu, Brute?” (You too, Brutus?) as his friend Brutus plunged his knife into him.
That is enough to make us all realize our meetings are not as crazy as they have sometimes seemed. Going forward we need to remember the saying “Which doth the general coffers fill” when deciding how to pay for the road repairs.
One last quote from memory to bore you since I have little to write about today. It seems appropriate in this environment. “The evil that men do lives after them but the good is oft interred with their bones.” O.K., I know, enough is enough. If my quotes are not perfect remember I am old.
