Hey, I used a part of that intro in class once. We were talking about "The Aeneid" and I asked that, basically this was Aeneas leading a "ragtag fugitive fleet..." and they founded Rome. ONE person in the class laughed. The professor said, "That's another reference, isn't it?" She knew by then that I liked to throw them in when they fit. I was the 40yo woman geek in a class of 19-20yo's!
