[Histonet] Latin - Thank goodness!

From:"Breeden, Sara"

When I was beginning high school (gulp - 1961), my mother INSISTED that
I take Latin.  I could not imagine what Latin would do for me in the
long run, but I have thanked mother many, many times for insisting.  Not
only is it priceless in the medical field, but just doing crossword
puzzles is made easier by knowing Latin.  I can still recite "Gaul is
divided into three parts..."!  I've used the c-with-the-little-bar and
the s-with-the-little-bar in practically everything (grocery lists,
college class notes, doing gross cut-in, etc.) and have many times been
asked what that means!  And, it's pronounced "coom" which relieves the
pronunciation anxiety and raised eyebrows.
