And after June-

Today We Rhinos are pondering the life of Gaius Julius Caesar, of Roman fame. He was a successful general in the Roman army, well-liked by the Romans, less so by the folks he thrashed. Many virtues, to be sure, but a few impressive shortcomings as well. Public life is not necessarily the proverbial bowl de cherries.

We bring this up because this is July, named in his memory. Caesar’s fame went to his head, understandably. The year he was made Dictator for Life, Julius Caesar was assassinated by the Senators of Rome.

Caesar may have gotten a too big for his britches, as We say.
