New Rome

Is this the twilight
of U.S. supremacy?
Rome lasted longer.

I deleted the above post because I assumed it was spam about Gucci handbags. Now I realize that this may have been hasty. Perhaps the poster was making a comparison between blind American consumerist greed (the desire for many expensive handbags) while tying this desire to Italy, the land of both Gucci and the heart of the Roman Empire. Obviously they mean to point out that acquiring more territory than one can manage, whether on a country-wide scale or a personal one, can lead to downfall.

So sorry about that.
