These Romans are crazy!

CaesarHappy Ides of March! Now, unless you got yourself a good classical education back at the old alma mater, you probably only know one thing about today: that it's on March 15 that Caesar bought the farm. Also, after putting the money down and signing all the papers for his new agricultural estate, he died. (He is an ex-Caesar.) But which one of us actually knows what led to and caused the death of Caes...yes, yes, Mr. Shakespeare, I see you in the back of the class, you can put your hand down, please. Anyway, for the rest of us who don't know our Ides of March from our Fourth of July, here's the real story, unabridged and unexpurgated, of what happened to Caesar and his Home of Rome: sit back, drink your mulled wine, and read on:
