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 are so accustomed to these ridiculous juxtapositions in urban life. Good "catch" on this photo.

Thank you for the "treat"! I think if you're dressed like a shark and handing out candy, privacy laws ought not pertain.

Ian Hislop, editor of Private Eye, berated an American guest on yesterday's TV satire programme, Have I Got News For You. Told him we had absolutely no need of Halloween, the imported US festival. Before then, he said, we'd been perfectly happy with our own home-grown event (November 5, Guy Fawkes night) where we "justifiably burned a Catholic". Too gritty for Canada?

Really like the design and colors in the waiting-for-train photo, and the way the giant semi-naked woman is all oiled and heeled and ridiculous-as-marketing, hanging over the head of the tiny man, who is not paying the least attention to her Brobdingnagian self.
