Two things occurred to me on this March 15, the Ides of March.

Wouldn’t it be great if our Politicians believed as Brutus did in this speech from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar ?

Remember March, the ides of March remember:

Did not great Julius bleed for justice’ sake?
What villain touch’d his body, that did stab,
And not for justice

What, shall one of us That struck the foremost man of all this world, But for supporting robbers, shall we now Contaminate our fingers with base bribes, And sell the mighty space of our large honours For so much trash as may be grasped thus?

I had rather be a dog, and bay the moon, Than such a Roman.

Point two is,  If Barack Obama was President back then, would he send out David Axelrod to blame Caesar’s murder on Israeli aggression.
