The last state school to teach classical Greek at A-level has announced it will no longer do so. That’s not just a shame, argues Harry Mount – it’s a mistake

A very interesting article, I enjoyed it very much.  I do very much love and believe that language holds a power that most people never realize in their lives.  How subtle nuance, inflections and even cadence can so alter a humans perceptions of a story, or an event. 

To offer a rather grossly and crude example, but one that should be well understood by most, "The War Department".  It was changed to "Department of Defense", and this was no accident, it was carefully crafted for several reasons.  It would be easy to rail against War Department spending, as it is often easy to oppose war when it isn't aptly justified.  However, it makes things far more difficult to rain against The Department of Defense, I mean don't you support defending your country and your people?   Changes everything, even though they are essentially the same function doing the same things, only the language changed.

Enemy Combatant for contemporary folks to chew on.  There are of course many other examples but it would behoove people to pay mind to how language is used and become wary it.

The current season of “Key & Peele” will be the last for the show but not the end of the collaboration between creators and stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.

The first craft brewery opened in this Southeastern city six years ago. Now it has 17 more -- with 20 others in the works.

+BrendaD Brown - The article is about Charlotte, but there are a few good micro-breweries in Birmingham.

Watching Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence roll joint after joint for Michael Fassbender would be delightful enough, but as part of an all-star ensemble live read of The Big Lebowski, there could be only one reasonable response. As part of the massive Just For Laughs comedy festival currently underway in Montreal,...

Michael Fassbender? Wow, that's a bit of a departure from the character type.

I have shopped at this store many times. Everyone there has always been friendly and helpful. They have a very good selection of things I am interested in and pretty good prices, too.

We just ate there this afternoon. I had the pork carnitas and it was one of the best meals I've had at a restaurant in a long time. My wife had a salad with strips of flank steak; she said it was very good as well. You could tell that the staff cares. When I told the waiter and the floor manager (separately) how much I liked the carnitas, both of their faces lit up.

Great burgers, even greater French fries. I love that you can have your choice of so many toppings and condiments on your burger, and I also love the peanuts.

This is one of my favorite restaurants, anywhere. I loved Jim 'n' Nicks 20 years ago, but it just seems to get better every time I go there. The spare ribs are to die for, and so is "Karl's Catfish". If I could afford it, I could probably eat there every day.

Even on a busy Saturday evening, our party of four was seated immediately. We had to wait a while for the other couple to arrive, but they did not seem to mind. The server was friendly and attentive. The food was very good and we had a very good time.

This is our favorite place to shop for groceries. The staff is friendly and helpful. The store is always very clean. They have most of the products we like. The meats are always fresh and tasty. And I love not having to carry an affinity card to get their special deals.

Zapata is one of my family's favorite places to go. The food is consistently good and the prices are reasonable.
