One would be hardpressed to find a worthy line in a roman poem about an airplane crashing into a skyscraper. The criticism in the article seems to be typical of those academics whose sole aim is to make some display of their "useless, and pointless, knowledge" (to use another quote).
I thought this was an interesting and relevant read, especially given the number of requests for Latin/Greek quotes that people make. In the age of soundbites, I guess context doesn't count for much.
