Greek and Roman myth is so much a part of the fabric of our consciousness, of our unconscious really, that was scarcely notice. you doubt me? in the town where i life, the college teams are known as the Spartans. our high school? the Trojans. in my state we have a troy(one of whose high schools is athens-and they say there are no comedians in education), an ithaca, a Sparta, a Romulus, a Remus, and a Rome.

i felt that this was interesting to think about. if we don't concentrate on the fact that it talks about rome and greek but just history in general. we never escape history, its always living around us. there are things in life that we neglect to see that actually mirror history or are things that history has left for us.
