Read in December, 2007

Things I think we can learn from the ancients: "[The Persians] are wont to debate their most serious concerns when they are drunk. But whatsoever they decide on, drunk, this the master of the house where they are debating proposes to them again on the next day, when they are sober. And if they like it too, sober, they act on it; but if they do not like it so, they let it be. And whatever they debate, in preliminary fashion, sober, they give to final decision drunk."
