March 26: "2,500 Years Ago, Aesop said..." (Vol. 17, pp. 21-30)

The first English language version of Aesop's Fables was published this day in 1484. To get some Aesop today is a welcome break from the heavy and unreadable stuff of the preceeding weeks.

"The Fox and The Grapes," "The Ant and The Grasshopper" and "The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" are a few of today's stories and are further proof of Aesop's superior grasp of human nature and human frailties.
