Nero Hero?

Nah, I don't think so. So here's the Wikipedia on Nero. Why was I reading it? Well ... I went to Wikipedia to look at something else.

And today was the anniversary of Nero's death -- suicide actually -- hey, is that a Greek or Latin based work -- sui + cide = self + kill -- Latin seems to me -- and Nero was accused of matricide too -- and you know what that means -- nothing to do with a mattress.

Anyway, he committed suicide to avoid FLOGGING -- which we all know as bloggers is the misguided suggestion of most Spell Checkers for replacing the word BLOGGING.
