The Romans are coming to South Carolina! Coming up on October 8 & 9 is a program that bills itself as a “most unique family event”: VITA ROMANA. Basically, it seems like a Roman trading camp is being set up in Brunson, South Carolina. Details about the event can be found on line at http://www.castrarota.com/.
I don’t know anything about the organization (and I’m not endorsing it here, just spreading the news). If you go, please let us know how it was and send me a few pictures!

Funding for state colleges continues to attract attention in the press. An interesting opinion piece appeared in Sunday’s NYTimes. The author argues that health care budgets and state funding of colleges are related. Over the decades as state spending on medical programs has increased, funding for higher education has decreased. If we do a better job funding health care at the federal level, states will be able to offer more support to colleges. Interesting idea.
