I’ve finally found a practical use for the Tutti i Verbi Greci: crushing spiders.
I was at my carrell yesterday reading the Alcestis when a large spider dropped quickly just in front of my face. Normally I’d leave it be, as spiders do us a great service by eating bugs, but I’d just watched Arachnophobia with my nephew the day before, and this thing looked mean. Luckily a well-timed and perfectly thrown Tutti Fruity (as Dr. K used to say) did the job.
Aside from that the book is largely useless — at best a crutch and at worst an immense waste of time.

i recently received my copy of ‘the killing of history’. i don’t know when i’m going to have a chance to read it, but i was happy to see that there is a quote from mary lefkowitz on the back cover. i only hope that windschuttle remembered to discuss the issue of the 1st person voice in pindar in his book.
dennis heard about windschuttle via david stove.
roger kimball heard about david stove via keith windschuttle.
i heard about both via…
JEROME, who is, after all, a SAINT.
