You really need a better translator, Rapaire.

ALso, since it is clear without ado that your intent in making these posts in bad Latin is in no wise to communicate, one must ask what it is you intend?

Your lack of knowledge of the tongue of Classical Rome is hardly my fault. And the Latin is quite good -- I suggest you ask a Latin teacher (assuming you can still find one around these days).

No, sir, I will not. I have a reasonable command of Latin, and my own sister is a specialist in it. But the burden of communication, first and foremost, is on he who communicates, and for you to engage in this sort of wilful anti-communication on this most revered of threads is obstreperous, and verges on the anti-social. Go, get thee to a nunnery, th'art a bag of dry dust and a scalawag in the bargain.

Did they not have standardized spelling in Voltaire's time, curmudgeon of obliquity, scamp of obscurity, daemon of incomprehensibility? Fie.

Just goes to show--you can make a ragamuffin into a librarian, but you will never get the ragamuffin out of the librarian. When you come to a frame of mind, you rapscallion, where you wish to communicate ideas instead of egocentric histrionics, please, be so kind as to advise of same.

So, you believe English is the only language in which one should even attempt communication? That only in English can great thoughts be expressed?

Isn't that a trifle lingual-centric? Are you...a linguist??

AYe, and a cunning one to boot. But here, where the flower of scintillating English releases the perfume of BS into the rich MOAB airs, is no place for you to practice dead languages, sirrah. To intentionally harangue someone in a language they cannot understand is not cunning; it is not informative; it is not entertaining; it is not compassionate; it is not communication; it is not helpful; it is not worthy of the Mother who watches over all of us.

I am sure there are other uses you can find for your many tongues -- or at least two.

Alas! Poor Cyrano, your tales would not be admitted by Amos! Alack, poor Baron Munchausen, you would be forced to wait in outside the door! Ah, Alfred, your failed Gedankenexperimenten would be barred because they were in German and hence not worthy of BS! Don Quixote and Rabelais, Gargantua and Pantagruel, the Wife of Bath...all banned!

It is enough to make Mom weep...and she is.

SHe weeps and bemoans your obstinate and curmudgeonly refusal to communicate. You see, the great difference between these titans and yourself, sir, is their merit moved those who wished to communicate their thoughts here to translate them into English; while your demerit moves you to take ordinary English sentiments--like "Up yours, Little Hawk!"-- and disguise them from all understanding, a most immoral impulse indeed. Fie, you semantic burier of noble thoughts and digger of grave-holes. Twice fie!

Is he native to this realm? No,
his wide nature grew out of both worlds.
They more adeptly bend the willow's branches
who have experience of the willow's roots.

When you go to bed, don't leave bread or milk
on the table: it attracts the dead--
But may Mom, this quiet conjurer, may She
beneath the mildness of the eyelid

mix their bright traces into every seen thing;
and may the magic of earthsmoke and rue
be as real for her as the clearest connection.

Nothing can mar for her the authentic image;
whether he wanders through houses or graves,
let her praise signet ring, gold necklace, BS, jar.

Come Little Hawk, Stilly, Old Bunnhab, Rapaire!
The smell of Noel is now stiff on the air!
Come Freds and comes spatulas, Khandu as well,
And lighten your hearts with the season's bright smell!
Li'l Hawk, leave your E-Bay, and Stilly your baking!
Forgot sour bowels and the toes which are achin'!
ANd hark unto Amos, the soul of verbosity!
FOrgive him his hubris, his wit and pomposity!
And then forgive Hawkster his fear of reality!
Forgive poor Bunnhabain his awesome mortality!
Bless Rebel's wild poems, forgive absent Khandu
The freds for their hunger for swallowing you!
And even Rapaire, if he'll only stop squirmin'
Soon shriven will be for his dastardly German!
His Latin forgiven, his Celtic and Frank!
And for now, he'll be welcomed as a regular Yank!
And soon all of MOAB will find itself reeling
In cinnamon odors and gobs of good feeling!
So quick, to the Season!! We'll make it all right!
Merry Christmas to all,
And BS,
And good night!

Yes, my paints are freezing as I use them and the ink in the inkwell has a skim of ice on it. Only a few twigs are available to burn, to barely turn my frozen tea into ice tea and to warm the single frozen dried herring for my pitiable supper. Even the notes from my trumpet freeze and fall to the floor before they can be heard.

To be so alone and so lonely at this Season, bereft of a loving family, of the warmth of smiling faces, to know that on Sunday I must endure the snarls and growls of other travelers and to be placed in the care of the airline industry...ah, how sad, how very, very sad.

You wish to discuss the intimate relationship between Obama and Palin? Is there one? I understand that Michelle is angry because Barack has been seeing some hussy -- I read it in "The Globe" at the market the other day. I guess George and Laura have made up, because there's been nothing about his binge drinking and carousing with Condi in the paper lately. Could the hussy be Sarah????

What???? No, you mistake my meaning entirely. I am not suggesting that Barack and Sarah are "an item". I am suggesting that they are each (separately, you understand) the most interesting figures on the American political scene of late. I predict that we will hear much more from Sarah once she weathers the storm of protest over her recent untimely shooting of Bullwinkle J. Moose. And as for Barack, he's going to be front page news for the foreseeabe future.

Little Hawk, the subjects you pick for discussion, they don't go together, despite the pundit's attempts. It's like hosting a ballet gala at the site of a train wreck. (Palin's soon-to be in-law was arrested on drug charges, scream yesterday's headlines. I didn't pursue the story).

Might as well ask the Freds to start reciting Shakespeare.

Stilly River Sage you ask for us and we were outside your house contemplating DNA incorporation of your dogs but were afraid to proceed. We can quote Shakespeare even though sheithe is not incorporated. We tried but found itherhis DNA to be too old and dry. Here is some Shakespeare. We will split ourself to say the parts:

fred 1: Round about the cauldron go.
In the poisoned entrails throw.
Toad, that under cold stone
Days and nights has thiry-one
Sweltered venom sleeping got
Boil thou first i' the charmd pot.
ALL: Double, double toil and trouble,
Fire burn and caldron bubble.

fred 2: Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake.
Eye of net and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blindworm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Fire burn and caldron bubble.

All freds: Double, double toil and trouble,
Fire burn and caldron bubble.

fred 2: Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
Witches' mummy, maw and gulf
Of the ravined salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digged i' the dark,
Liver of blaspheming Jew,
Gall of goat and slips of yew
Slivered in the moon's eclipse,
Nose of Turk and Tatar's lips,
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-delivered by a drab,
Make the gruel thick and slab.
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For the ingredients of our caldron.

All freds: Double, double toil and trouble,
Fire burn and caldron bubble.

fred 2: Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

This is our favorite part of Shakespeare. It makes what you call a "good soup" if you use good DNA. Here is some more of our favorite Shakespeare:

I am Gluttony, my parents are al dead, and the diuel a peny they haue left me, but a bare pension, and that is 30. meales a day, and tenne beauers, a small triflle to suffice nature, O I come of a royall parentage, my grandfather was a gammon of bacon, my grandmother a
hogs head of Claret-wine:My godfathers were these, PeterPickle-herring,and Martin Martlemas-biefe, O but my godmother she was a iolly gentlewoman,and welbeloued in euery good towne and Citie, her name was mistresse Margery March-beere: now Faustus, thou hast heard all my Progeny, wilt thou bid me to supper?

So you see, freds can quote Shakespeare.

1. It used to be an island before the WPA filled in part of the water surrounding it. The name has simply continued, and soon Hawaii won't be an island either, but will be connected to Oregon.

2. It was founded by Cecil Rhode, one of Cecil Rhodes' grandfather, the other of whom was also named Cecil Rhode. When Cecil Rhodes' parent married they changed their last name to reflect the intersection of the Rhodes.
