As we find our inner stillness, we might recall that it was on this date in 43 BCE that Rome’s greatest orator, Marcus Tullius Cicero was executed (his head and hands were amputated) for his Philippics, a series of speeches attacking Mark Antony and calling for a restoration of the Republic.  Sic semper prōtestor.

From Christian Annyas, “The Movie Title Stills Collection“– screen shots of the head titles, end titles, and trailer titles from hundreds of feature films dating from the 1920s to today.


As we fiddle with our fonts, we might recall that it was on this date in 1961 that Danish barbers’ assistants, who had begun a labor action in Copenhagen in 1938, ended their 33-year-long strike– the longest on record.
