During this week, I was combing through the New York Post and ran across an article, Secrets of the Parthenon, and was enlightened to read that a new discovery had been made regarding the frieze and the relationships to Egyptian Mummies. While scientists were examining a mummy, they discovered an ancient play from Greece written in a lost Greek text.

Finally, for those who are inspired by the antics of politics, there is an excellent video on youtube of Andrew Napolitano speaking at the 2010 Mises University entitled Whatever Happened to the Constitution which can be watched here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sNWbiAMf80&noredirect=1
