Horace - Roman Poet, Timeline, Facts - Horace Biography

O imitators, a servile race, how often have your attacks roused my bile and often my laughter.”   —   Horace

(Wow!  It took me quite a while to get past the fact that the “D” and the “E” weren’t necessarily the A and the I, or vice versa.  I had to remember that poets love to exclaim “O”.  Which makes me wonder, is there a real difference between “O” and Oh”?  I know I never use “O”, but then again . . . I ain’t no poet!  Initially, I guessed wrong on “E” and made it the I.  But after toying with the “D” as O, I began to see OFTEN, which helped me realize that the “H” was the T, which helped me see ATTACKS.  So, I changed the I’s to A’s.  But even after all of that, it took me some time to decode the other words.  This was the first time in a very, very long time that I wrote down the T’s so early.  I usually write them down second to last, just before writing in the E’s.  At least I was able to save the E’s for last!  Hardest one, for me, in quite some time!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy birthday to Stevie Benton of Drowning Pool!  (I’m not a big heavy metal fan, but there are some songs that I do like, and this is one of them.  Hard Rock for a hard Cryptoquote!)

The white man's burden – The Journal, Detroit,...

The illustration which solves one difficulty by raising another settles nothing.”   —   Horace

(You’d think that this quotation would have come up during the proposals that led to the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181.  Sixty seven years later the pain still throbs, the injustice still resonates.  The White Man’s Burden mentality should have died out in the 19th Century, but it’s still being carried out to this day, under the guise of “spreading freedom and democracy”.  Will money and power always speak louder than equality and justice?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
