JL: <<<So it means nada that horses were sacred to Poseidon, who built
Troy, and
that Hector was famed as a bronco-buster?>>>
WB:  Some say he even begat the first horse. Earth Shaker + Horse Tamer =
Quaker Oats??? Also had the franchise on the ocean sea.  Many heretical
hypotheses RE: the destruction of Troy. The Trojan Bible according to Homer
(fulfilled in Virgil's New Testament) is good enough for me, too. Dat's
some ole time religion.
