Oh, that Horace! Not only was he a poet, but a satirist and lampoonist as well. Can't you just see Horace sitting at the forum with his toga-clad friends, watching traffic, BS'ing and swilling sambuca or strega, then going home to write? Some 1500 years later, a poet named Shakespeare would write, "Oh what fools these mortals be..." Thanx, Teodoro, for giving the board a new twist!
