#26 - On the Complexities of Life

"Right now I'm working my way through the Hales history of the Byzantine Empire. Holy shit! Everything is easy until you get to the Byzantine Empire. It's impossible. One emperor is always killing the others, and everyone has five wives or three husbands. It's very Byzantine." - Howard Moskowitz, in Malcolm Gladwell, "The Ketchup Conundrum," New Yorker (6 September 2004), p. 130.
