What's with the Latin, and
the bust of the emperor at the top of this page, at least
for those whose web browsers permit such frivolities? Why, today is the
Ides of March, and
we mourn (or celebrate) the 2,039th anniversary of the assassination of
And as for bibendum, or drinking . . . well,
a "huge St. Paddy's bash" is announced for the Bombshelter pub today -- The

At 12:30 in the studio theatre, Humanities room 180, is "Salt Water

No comment about the slam at Fed Hall. But have a good time
