Fifteen years - so glad I found you back then! That blogging community is a major reason why I know people in different countries, different lives, all of whose reaction to these times is sane and kind and makes me feel better and less alone.

2005? You were already blogging when I started in 2003.

Dave and Jean, yeah, I screwed up. I *thought* it was 2003, but the archive said 2005 -- I didn't realize that Typepad's archive of course doesn't include the first two years when I was on Blogger. I've been happy to see some of the old bloggers coming out of the woodwork these recent weeks and beginning to post again, or write elsewhere. though Dave's weekly compendium does a much better job of keeping track of people than I manage to do.

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.
