Aristotle and Poetic Justice

--I take it back about the narrator-hero being just an ordinary nice young Athenian man. He's thick as two short planks and a moral coward.

Excellent corrective to The Last of the Wine.

This is what happens when you work a lot and play with hanzi a lot and try to read Stargate. Well, and write about seven pages of a new story. With poems. Some of which rhyme. Verse eats time.
