In a sure sign that I may be paying too much attention to American politics, I pondered the following CNN headline for a good three minutes this morning:

Romania Ponders Girl's Abortion

I understood the conflation of "Obama" and "Mania" quite clearly. Obviously Barack Obama's rabid followers were pondering abortion. But the "R" threw me. Who was "R"? Karl Rove, perhaps? But why would he be grouped with Obama's supporters? It was all quite puzzling.

Eventually I figured it out. God bless the land of Dracula.

It is also the land of Ovid's exile. A land whose inhabitants he described as being too uncivilized to even be troubled to beat the ice out of their beards. But by that time, Ovid was fairly bitter.
