Voice in the Wind: The Very Angry Gladiator

Voice in the Wind, pp. 186-200Atretes is to fight in the arena this week. Rivers says Atretes and those others who were scheduled to fight "were brought into an anteroom, where they were to wait until a contingent of guards would arrive to take them to the quarters beneath the arena." Rivers has read enough to know that the Colosseum has not yet been built, and hints at Marcus wanting that contract, but she does not appear to know that before this structure was built, the games were … [Read more...]

In Wake of London Bridge Attack, Trump Wants to Talk about Guns

Donad Trump took to twitter yesterday with this tweet:Text: "Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That's because they used knives and a truck!"Trump was, of course, referring to Saturday's London Bridge attack, in which three terrorists killed seven by plowing a truck through a crowd and going on a stabbing spree through nearby restaurants. Many more were injured. It's true they didn't use guns, and it's true we aren't now having a debate over guns. But we … [Read more...]

Voice in the Wind: Those Horrible, Immoral Romans

Voice in the Wind, pp. 180-186This week's section is all about how much Atretes hates Romans. It begins with him walking through crowds, into the city to the ludus. A man touched him in a way that sent the hair on the back of his neck bristling. He lunged at him, wanting nothing more than to break his neck, but the chains prevented him from doing so. Bato gave an order and several guards moved closer to the wagon to keep admirers back. But that didn't prevent him from following and calling … [Read more...]
