John,

Thanks. It's growing on me, as well. I'm going to bump it up to the top as a provision edit for the moment.

Aaron: I both like the second line of that a lot, and also enjoy the image of you surrounded and outnumbered by those destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked.

Sorry to be late on this thread. Archilochus is an interest of mine as well.

"Daily bread" has great charm in context here, but for some it might be instructive to know that those words are from a notable Greek ἅπαξ λεγόμενον, which Lattimore translates as "sufficient bread."

Hi Allen,

Thanks for joining the conversation, even late. I do like "hapax legomenons," and I didn't know know "daily bread" was one. I don't think it's worth changing, but I do think it's worth knowing. Thanks.
