Quote of the day: Gordon Brown please take note.

One for Gordon Brown
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."

Cicero 55BC

The one Q o t D that Gorgon should emulate is Madoff's "Sorry"

Great advice... except that it's from 'A Pillar of Iron' (1965), a fictional account of the life of a Roman senator, by Taylor Caldwell.

Marcus Tullius Cicero's actual quote is... "The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and assistance to foreign hands should be curtailed, lest Rome fall."

Bet you thought that I spent all my time on YouTube ;)
