    "Beware the Ides of March!"

    Soon after the prophetic utterance by a Ceaser's spiritual adviser and soothsayer, Caesar was attacked and stabbed to death by a group of senators.

    Caesar:
    Who is it in the press that calls on me?
    I hear a tongue shriller than all the music
    Cry "Caesar!" Speak, Caesar is turn'd to hear.


    Soothsayer:
    Beware the ides of March.


    Caesar:
    What man is that?


    Brutus:
    A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.






    Be careful out there!

    Anyone else remember when the Ides of March was the last date for federal income tax filing?


    When I was in high school, there was a place down the road called the IDES Hall. Took a while to understand that there was no reference to Rome, but to the International Society of the Holy Spirit. Most of the town's 450 residents were hispanic, I think.
