Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

We have a doctor like that - great guy, but built himself a mansion in a corn field and plays farmer, with pet bison and llamas and such. I gather his daughter didn't have an easy time of it in the local public schools, but that's more becasue they're Jewish than becuase they're rich. Not anti-Semitism per se, I don't think, just anti-anything different.

Good luck! Hope all goes well.
