This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

I have nothing against Latin. by rkg
I think it's great that you studied and enjoy Latin. Literature is NOT all Latin has to offer.
It's been said that when you pray, pray in Latin. To quote: When you pray in Latin, you are praying in union with the rest of the Church in the same universal language the Roman Church has prayed for practically her entire existence.
I'm Catholic. I go to mass every Sunday and aim to go 2 times a week minimum. I encourage you if you are able to attend mass in Latin if you can. You'll feel refreshed.
My original point, which may have not been made as eloquently as I would have like, was that playing Navy is unnecessarily tedious where we have to "put what we have learned all year to get ready for an offense we likely see only once a year", which was not unlike my educational experience with Latin.
