According to this news story, one of the chief complaints about the Iranian election has been not enough ballets. I guess their voters take culture very seriously.

Holy shit! I see the error that’s been deleting or truncating comments in the talkbacks here has been doing to the same thing to my regular posts all the way back to the beginning. This is looking to be a major disaster.
UPDATE: The farther I look, the worse it gets. It looks like the majority of my posts over the past four years have been destroyed, perhaps irretrievably.
2ND UPDATE: The Empire is currently undergoing reconstruction and, apart from a few comments being lost and apparently others having their order rearranged, looks like it’s well on its way to a 99% recovery. Thanks, Brandon!
Ive been a big fan of Mike Grells Warlord since I was eleven. But I do have a gripe about a line in the latest issue (new series #3): Plato had it wrong. Atlantis was no utopian society.
Plato never portrayed Atlantis as a utopian society. In the Timæus and Critias the only two places where he mentions Atlantis Plato describes Atlantis as a wicked, arrogant, imperialistic society that fought a war against the utopian society of the Republic, here transposed to an antediluvian prototype of Athens.
