Most will know of the Ides of March, a day in Roman times dedicated to their war god Mars, perhaps best remembered through "Shakespeare's" Julius Caesar play, the Roman general assassinated on that date back in 44BC after being forewarned by a soothsayer of his impending and savage murder.
This year's 15th March has been chosen by the London Olympic 2012 organisers as the date that the 6.6 million tickets will go on sale for what chairman, Lord Coe, described, Billy Smart's Circus style, as the "greatest show on earth".
Maybe I have been thinking too much about resurrections given Mark Kennedy/ Stone (allegedly born 7/7/69) and "his" Osiris resonating Tamarisk barge, as noted yesterday, but is that not a coffin like shape surrounding the ominous date in the above billboard display; to the left of the crown shaped stadium.
Whatever, it should indeed be some show.
