Epaminondas of Thebes

Well, this post is waaaaaay outside the purview of the 2006 General Assembly, but I just wanted to note that Wednesday's "Featured Article" on the main page of The Wikipedia was Epaminondas of Thebes, my favorite figure from antiquity.

Back to the present, Speaker Howell has all the bills communicated out of the Senate assigned to committee now (as does Madam Clerk in the Senate). Let the bodies hit the floor, gentleman.

Wikipedia has a lot of great article like this one on Epaminondas. However, I would stay away from anything dealing with current politics. The political articles are not reliable.

Now there's a tragic (and obscure) figure if there ever was one!

That's no mean accomplishment. Thebes has lived under the shadow of Athens and Sparta for way too long!
