The family grows!
I'm trying to get caught up, which is something that by definition never happens in blogging.
But I am glad to have help here, in the form of a genuine classical scholar, who's writing under the name of VARIUS CRISPINUS. (If that sounds too much like a cereal brand name to you, do some research!)
His first post is about Howard Stern, with whose radio show I've been intransigently in love for ten years (and which makes me admittedly very biased). I don't know whether I agree completely with VARIUS (as I haven't thought it over yet, and I reserve the right to remain silent -- as perhaps I should have been about Andrew Sullivan....) but I'll say this; he can say anything he wants without any editorial control by me.
VARIUS (who right now is "off to Euripides"), describes himself as:
.... a dabbler with many gaps to fill, but I've tended to favor Greek poetry of all periods and the reception of Greek poetry among Roman poets of the late Republic and early Empire.VARIUS is more complicated than that, and is obviously more modest than even he allows. Or I will allow, for that matter. He's talented, and I hope he'll add new meaning and put new muscle in the "CLASSICAL" part of Classical Values.
WELCOME VARIUS! (I hope this will take some of the pressure off my sense of daily blogligation.....)
What really has me puzzled now is how to break this news to my beloved blogfather Jeff. For he is the blogfather of Classical Values, and now that Classical Values has more than one author, Jeff deserves another cigar!
Double congratulations to Jeff! (And while you're at it, go read his Weekly Check on the Bias.
And a warm welcome to VARIUS CRISPINUS.
