Triumph



Christopher Beha, who made his way heroically through all 51 volumes of the Harvard Five Foot Shelf, not skipping or substituting for antiquated translations, classics faded to the vanishing point, and German philosophy, has finished his tremendous task.  The link is opposite -- you should go congratulate him. and state your own vow to do a similar impossible reading task:  the entire Library of  Alexandria maybe.

Meanwhile he has started a new site, www.christopherbeha.com,  which has the peculiar title "A smell of petroleum prevails throughout."  The anecdote explaining this will delight  joculum and other readers of this site.  I will add it to the links.
