(Nice little pun.  Prague is a city I’ll just have to see, one day.  I got three of the four clue words without ANY trouble.  However, “ethic” was a real challenge!  I had to back into it, AND play around with a number of variations.  The answer was pretty obvious, but the answer letter layout didn’t give anything away.  I’ve heard so many good things about Prague.  Some day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It is the superfluous things for which men sweat.”   —   Seneca

(Whether this was from Seneca the Elder – less likely – or Seneca the Younger – more likely, neither one of them knew much about real sweat.  I sweat wondering how I’m going to pay next month’s mortgage payment.  Very often I wake up in a cold sweat.  Such is life as a 99 %er.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
