Deja vu all over again

Dear Editor:

Don't you just love the way history seems to repeat itself?

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new wonderful good society which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious." - Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)

As appropriate today as it was then!
