GRIN AND BEAR IT
It's so good to see the Shoe back up and running after a hiatus seemingly filled with sex and violence and brought to an end by drugs. It would seem that some people have all the luck.
It was interesting to read Jess's take on that old Stoic, the Marcomanniacal Marcus Aurelius Antonius.
I would be much more interested however, in the story of Faustina, his wife. However did she put up with him?
Or did she, in fact, grin and bare it all to Avidius Cassius?
I think we should be told.
Edit: Er...I've been told. Here.
