"He taught him horsemanship, archery and how to wield lasso, rein and stirrup, and what and when and how, the rites of of convivial society, of formal ceremony and the symposium; hawking, falconry and how to hunt with the cheetah; what was justice or the lack of it; what the throne and the crown meant; how to deliver orations and how to go to war and lead an army."

Bear with Me
I saw this rather amazing pic in the dead tree Denver Post this morning. A black bear wandered on to the University of Colorado campus in Boulder and wildlife officials had to tranquilize him to remove him safely. As you can see they put out a nice soft mat for him when he passed out and fell out of the tree.
