    “Tabula delenda est!” Classic.

    I probably wouldn’t’ve bothered to vote “no” except that I really don’t like the Tablet. Have fun without me!

    If people are going to be in NYC that morning for the blognic, perhaps they could first swing by St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral for 8 am Mass (Ordinary Form), followed by the monthly Witness for Life at the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. It’s sponsored by some of the Catholic young adults, and is followed by a brief social with the Sisters of Life. Perhaps the blognic could take place nearby, in Little Italy?

    Please think about coming down to the Greenville/Spartanburg South Carolina area sometime, Father! :)

  4. I note that several have indicated their presence, but there are not so many comments.

    I can plan the Saturday blognic to suit myself!

  5. Animadversor says:

    Father, I think that you ought always to make the arrangements to suit yourself. It would certainly be much easier for you, and I rather doubt that the end result will be any less convenient for everyone else than when you go through this long, drawn-out process of trying to discern the desires of people who aren’t all in the same place at the same time when you ask them, and who, in any case, would probably be just as happy to show up when and where you tell them to, if they can. People will say that they like to be consulted, but so often they really prefer not to have something else about which they must think and make a decision. As for having it before ten o’clock, I don’t really like the idea, given my late hours the previous evening, but I might show up anyway, the benefit to everyone else being that I should probably be so sleepy that my garrulousness would be held in check (a bit). That said, assuming that it will be held at ten on Saturday morning, it would be very convenient for me to have it at East 58th Street and Third Avenue, where there is any very large and airy venue, with plenty of seating, free Wi-Fi, big windows, and cheap coffee, tea, pastries, etc.—but not a lot of New-Yorky atmosphere. Fairly easy to get to using the subway, bus, cab, etc. But they open at ten o’clock, not before. Any comments?

    I will endeavor to get to any spot you select.

    In re M Heller’s post: You see?

    Temporibus antiquis (annis MCMLXXV), congressus mea casa proxima fuit, in via Waverly apud Mercer. Eheu!
    Salutationes omnibus.

    “Tabula Delenda Est”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Same for NCR too)

    Well, I can’t come, because I’m up here in ‘the boonies’ of Upstate New York….please, Father Z, come here sometime…there’s a lot more to New York than just ‘the city’! [yeah, I know, I’m being a nag in constantly saying this] Besides, it takes too long to drive, and the trains can be unreliable.

    ‘Tabula delenda est’…I have a tape of a young priest saying the ‘original’ quote, ‘Carthage must be destroyed’ in Latin…you can almost sense his lips curling in scorn and his teeth bared! Love it!

    You have to read this story by Kipling: Regulus.

    The story revolves around one of Horace’s Odes. King, the classics master in the story, launches on Carthage at one point. Many other amusing things also occur.

    The Kipling Society is kind enough to give the ode and a translation on its website here:

    Horace, Odes III v
