February 28: Spoke Latin First (Vol. 32, pp. 29-40)
Michel de Montaigne was born on this day in 1533, and its strange that the editors pick an unreadable essay on education for today's reading. Apparently, his education was a bit unorthodox, as he learned Latin before he learned how to speak French. I know he's written better stuff than this, so I'll let this one pass.
