    Herodotus was a lot of fun. I’m fairly sure he turned up in Thebes fresh off the boat and asked a random functionary about stuff, whereupon that functionary told him a bunch of stories taller than Khufu’s pyramid. He was a cross between a historian and a tabloid journo. But since he invented the art of history telling I forgive him. Also I like tabloids, they’re distilled culture.

    Never had the urge to read Manning Clark or Ross Fitzgerald. Nor Peter Fitzsimian for that matter.

    Thanks, Toby. Nothing I can do about it.
    Therefore, I don’t really care.

    I’m surprised anyone uses MS Edge.
