Things That Warm My Cold, Cold Heart

  1. Misreading two lines in a Chicagoboyz post, a review of a book on the fall of the Roman Empire. They give the table of contents, which includes these lines:
          1. Romans 3
          2. Barbarians 46
    I couldn’t help reading that as a football score — Romans 3, Barbarians 46 — which is not a bad summary of the worst part of the fifth century.
  2. Finding Opera Quae Fuperfunt as a title in the ABE Books data base.
  3. While still half-asleep at 6:40 am yesterday, I thought of a good title for a novel about a decadent esthete with an NRA membership: Molon La-Bàs.
