Omul ministru și ministrul om

Mai rar așa cult al personalității. Nelu Pop este un condei milițienesc old style.

„Reverberatia noastra romaneasca si exprimarea publica a bucuriei Zilei Drapelului a primit conotatii inalte prin participarea inimoasa-demna-barbateasca si insufletirea intregii festivitati de catre ministrul nostru, comandantul nostru, Prim-Ministrul interimar domnul GABRIEL OPREA. Traiesc sentimente de mare respect si aprecieri, alaturi de ceilalti colegi ai nostri din minister, fata de OMUL MINISTRU si MINISTRUL OM – din fruntea Internelor.”

Edward Gibbon

The Best of Scribblers by 

Scholars have noted the shortfalls of Gibbon’s scholarship. François Furet commented that in his history Gibbon “deprived the German people of their basic dignity.” Bernard Lewis contended that Gibbon’s portrait of Muhammad “is still much affected by myths” and “gives expression to his own prejudices and purposes and those of the circles in which he moved.” Steven Runciman claimed that Gibbon’s Greek was weak and that “the spirit of Byzantium eluded him,” while “the splendor of his style and the wit of his satire killed Byzantium studies for nearly a century.” Gibbon himself had second thoughts about beginning his story of Rome’s decline with the Emperor Commodus, son of Marcus Aurelius, when well before that time Rome had such intemperate and vice-ridden emperors as Tiberius, Caligula, and Nero. But in the end all this seems negligible next to his monumental accomplishment.

Blame Harvard for this annoying Boston accent test by Eric Randall

Today, in cars laden with mini-fridges and movie posters, the Harvard class of 2019 moves into the freshman dormitories on Harvard Yard. It’s a special day in the Boston area. After all, it marks one of the few instances when someone with a Boston accent might actually instruct people to — wait for it — “pahk the cah on Hahvahd Yahd.”

Apart from this occasion, car access to the Yard is limited to nonexistent. “We are very strict as far as who we allow in,” says Maureen A. McCarthy, manager of Harvard Yard and freshmen dormitories. “We have a lot of pedestrians and tourists so for safety concerns and just appearance, too, we limit vehicles.” Even the cars carrying new freshmen onto campus have just 20 minutes to unload before moving on. “They’re not parked here all day while they go to lunch,” McCarthy says. “We keep a close eye on that.”
