By Request

Like a magic lamp or Uncle Sam, I’m here to grant your wishes. Or at least, I’ll entertain suggestions: if you’d like to see more Latin, more Robert Nisbet, less politics, shorter posts, trashy pop-culture recommendations, etc. let me know — leave a comment on this thread or email me.

I’m thinking of adding a song-of-the-day feature in an effort to scandalize all who know me. I can also offer a daily reading of the sortes Vergilianae: today’s line is cogere concilium, cum muros adsidet hostis (Aeneid XI.304), “…to call a council, when the enemy is camped out around our walls.”

Looks like Vergil endorses my asking for suggestions, although the words immediately preceding that say, “this is no time…”

    All of the above. I would say keep a consistent amoung of politics going on – whether day to day reactions to more philosophical musings – and then leaven it with your recommendations, Latin and quirks.

    I’ve found that I get the most reaction out of everything when I keep to a mix. If I go all politics people tire of it and then go bananas when I tell a funny or slightly personal story.

    Consistency in posting and variety.
