Rome Quotes

"What my wife and I say to ourselves when we hear the, 'well, like, you know, totally, oh my gosh, for sure, dude, whatever' Americanish on the buses in Rome.  'Hic enim aut barbarus semisermo discendus est aut tacendum est.'  For around here one either has to learn a barbarous half-language or say nothing at all.  St. Jerome's seventh letter.  And these are the college students who are wealthy enough and "educated" enough to spend a semester abroad in Rome. Lord, save us from education!"

-Jonathan
