alexander got a fever after a excessively drunken bachanalia funeral for 2 days and died.
in the summery, they have decided he had gone mad, but had to be called 'great' because of all he had done.
he was just beginning his plans to invade arabia. shame he didn't get bogged down there and get destroyed, for more historical parallels for georgie to IGNORE.

RANDOM CICERO POST
quote-"what i am mpore afraid of is lest, being ignorant of the true path to glory, you should think it glorious for you to have more power by yourself than all the rest of the people put together, and lest you should prefer being feared by your fellow citizens to being loved by them. and if you do think so, you are ignorant of the road to glory. for a citizen to be dear to his fellow citiaens, to DESERVEwell of the republic, to be praised, to be respected, to be loved, is glorious;but to be feared, and to be the object of hatred, is odious, detestable; and moreover,pregnant with WEAKNESS AND DECAY. and we see that, even in the play, the very man who said,
'what care i tho all men should hate my name, so long as fear accompanies their hate?'
found that it was a mischievous principle to act upon.

still in Alexander the great. more like Bush last night. sounds like alex too liked a rosey bubble. only LUV for alex. no criticism to be allowed, for alex is the son of a god(or so somebody told him). of course georgie was CHOSEN by God, so.....
somebody last night (clisus?-can't remember, except c)couldn't take the obsequiousness at a banquet and let loose a torrent of criticism. even though many tried to hold back the drunken alexander, he picked up a pike and killed his critic. georgie just has KKKarl do it for him.
one less Bush week to go.
shall we have to endure scalito
can we please get impeachment?
one less FUCKING Bush week to go.

i am in the middle of ALEXANDER the great right now, and i gotta say, he sounds a bit like georgie W. jeez, the turd last night cut off the nose and ears of a 'foe'. alex was a bad bad boy.
and his 'feud' with darius reminded me of georgie's oedipal feud with sadaam. alex also said something like if you aren't with us, you are one of them. and that darius was an evil-doer.
although he was taught as a young man by aristotle, and had more edjumication AND actually went to battle, unlike OUR chickhawk, alex sounds as spoiled as georgie.
