“He’s got it, yeah baby, he’s got it.”

Today is the feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas on the reformed Roman calendar. Under the traditional calendar it is March 7, but was transferred under the 1970 calendar reforms, from the date of his death (the usual location), to the date of the transfer of his relics to Toulouse (not unusual as a substitute, and probably to prevent it from ever occurring in Lent). His great work, the Summa Theologica, is featured among the favorite book's on my son Paul's MySpace page.

There is a trio of history teachers -- Bambi, Vicki, and Angelica -- known collectively as “historyteachers” and who produce videos telling about, uh, history. Vicki is the cool one. Angelica is the smart one. Bambi is blonde. Current projects underway include Catherine the Great, Guernica, and Queen Isabella.

Yeah, they got a Facebook page and a YouTube account. Cute, huh?
