Is America Going Cuckoo?

Aha, my suspicions have been confirmed. :)

A study, just published in the Journal of the American Medical Association by researchers from the World Health Organization and Harvard Medical School, indicates that there is more mental illness and insanity in the land of 'freedom fries' than other developed countries.

Need help with a selection from Ch. 36

I'm stuck on the second sentence of "I Love Her ... I Love Her Not," which reads:
Quare id faciam fortasse requiris.
I can translate each word separately, but I cannot put them together into a meaningful sentence. Is there some implied word that I should supply to make sense out of it?

Thank you very much for any help.

The future lasts a long time

I have very basic questions, some of them to do with motivation, which the more experienced and erudite contributors might find strange if not barbaric. But here goes. I've started the first book of Athenaze and am, in the long-term, primarily interested in reading Homeric Greek, Plato & Aristotle. But I still find it amazingly difficult to read very basic sentences in the Greek alphabet. Any advice? How long does this last, 2 years, 5? ...
