I opened my Newsweek this week and was surprised and dismayed to find an article on the destruction of Pompeii that is happening today! Apparently the site has been neglected for some time, and many fear that the buildings will not survive much longer. Book your tours now!

Also in the popular media this week: some Latin on banners in Gulliver’s Travels. According to Amy on the LatinTeach listserv:
The Good Guys’ motto is Condo Et Assero
The Bad Guys’ motto is Rapio Et Abfugio (sic)
