On the Fleetingness of Fame

Recommended Posts

From "Homeward Bound" by Harry Turtledove:

"Some Englishman had gained immortality of a sort by calling vanished Petra a rose-red city half as old as time. (It was immortality only of a sort, for nobody bothered to remember the rest of the poem these days, or even the Englishman's name.)

A rose-red city hall? Ours I'd call brick red.



Thanks.  Fixed.  Darned that OTTO!  

And darned my eyes!   I need to increase the font size on my phone.
