Charlotte Higgins was kind enough to respond to my comments about her post on Barack Obama as the new Cicero. She suggested that I do some reading, a book about which I am ignorant, but I will find the Matthew Fox book on Cicero and adjust my views accordingly. As part of my appreciation for Charlotte Higgins taking the time to provide edification, I have added a link to her blog on this site. Not every blogger pays attention to the readers, and someone working for a major newspaper has far less time for interaction than most. Maybe I can help to bring to her blog an extra reader or two from this side of the pond.
