The Temple of Dendur

Now this is impressive.

Still, given that this is a religious artifact and here we all are appreciating it just as eye candy, I find myself reminded of the Philip Glass opera "Akhnaten," where the ancient Egyptian scribe at the beginning IS EXACTLY THE SAME GUY who leads the tour of the ruins at the end.

I suppose the fact that I even know who Philip Glass is means I'm an "elite," and hence by current political fad means I should be disqualified from holding public office.

Maybe in the future, to satisfy the demands of politics, Harvard and Yale will start allowing promising students to attend anonymously, so that they can enjoy the benefits of education in their private life but retain the ability to present themselves as uneducated to the voting public :)
