Eric at Classical Values has brought his typically superb analysis to the argument over Kerrys stonewalling over the release of his Form SF-180.
To put things into an international perspective, 193 happens to be the same number of days as there are countries in the world!
To give the number the classical perspective it requires for this solemn occasion, the year 193 was quite a big one in Roman history. Three emperors ruled:
Pertinax — installed the year before after the assassination of the madly tyrannical Commodus, and who was in turn assassinated by the Praetorian Guard, who then auctioned off the throne to –> Marcus Severus Didius Julianus — an incompetent emperor whose purchase of the throne sparked the Roman Civil War of 193-197, and who was ousted and killed by –> Septimius Severus — who managed to usher in the relatively stabler Severan Dynasty.
I think its highly appropriate that 193 denotes international chaos.
So, while Polipundit has his counter set at 100 days and counting, one which we also have on our side, I will also keep up with Classical Values count.
