So the Randocks are in prison and Janko is dead. There is a God. He usually gets it right. You've got a nice start there Jehovah, God of vengeance.

Shame on you all.........I will continue to pray that George Dana Gollin gets what he deserves......perhaps he will enjoy a far worse fate that this???  Naturally, of course!!!

I apologize, Uncle Janko was a dirty bastard!  Now I recall some of the innocent, decent people he attacked, without cause.

He had been working on his dissertation for at least nine years, and I regard it as an academic masterpiece: The Republic of the Sacred: A Commentary on Book II of Cicero’s On the Laws.
-----------------------------------------------------

Tell me that Dr. Bear is wrong.  Janko may have been a cranky old man with a uniquely personal sense of morality,  but the same title - no.

Edit - Bear was wrong - Dr. Song was his adviser at U. of Zululand.  Song knows as much about Cicero as I know about doctor level theology - little.  Apparently the degree was a ThD not a PhD.

From Bear - The real title

Earlier, I provided an incorrect title -- one that appeared on an earlier draft, that I had been sent a year or so ago. The title, as published, is:
_____________________________________________________________
HOLINESS AND HUMANISM: A Comparative-Religions Commentary on Book 2 of Cicero's Laws, with Special Reference to Confucianism and Chinese Thought.

ABSTRACT
After a brief introduction, a new translation of De Legibus II, and prolegomenal remarks, the commentary discusses in Cicero's sequence how place connects to ancient times and traditions, God's Law, and his judgment on human laws, tension between Roman religion and Greek philosophy, and the setting forth of Cicero's code of religious law. The code covers whom to worship, the power of Cicero's own priesthood, religion and political unity, social justice, and religious rites. Cicero's digressions on a turf-war beween augurs and pontifices and priestly responsibility for religious law alone, the rites of death, and the prospect of immortality.

Excursuses within the commentary include holy reason as imago Dei in humans; dialogists' family and friendship, legitimacy of law in Confucianism; the supreme God and His/Its relation to lesser deities, especially Minerva; hyperphilologism and ancient holist theology (hence referece to current African philosophy and theology and to modern religious traditions), Cicero's anti-Platonism, parallel Confucian-Mohist enmity, and the common substrate of family and family rite; mistaking propriety for agnosticism and tacit knowing for unbelief; reliability of the canonical texts; the sages' descendants and clasical explications; tyranny as the sin of patricide; Roman priesthoods with reference to the religious power of women; family religious rites; the augural priesthood and its liberationist implications.

Selected interpretive issues meriting further enquiry follows: the integrity of theology in DL2, and aspects of classical Confucianism, Cicero's theological language and the use of translations; theological anti-totalitarianism in Cicero and his contemporary Han Dynasty Confucians; scholoarly contempt for Cicery and its civic-theological implications; late-dating of DL as buttress of its civic-theoloigical character; Isocrates as anti-Platonic paradigm of theological political praxis; the distinctiveness of our sages over against mediaeval philosophical theology in the West and China, and anti-imperialism theology in Viet Nam or Cicero's Philippics.

The conclusion offers encouragement in civic-theological resistance to tyranny, the role of humane reason in theology, and the present applicability of aspects of the theology of Cicero and that of Confucius

So Janko took his failed thesis from Loyola and threw in some Chinese stuff to impress Dr. Song who only knows that Cicero is a dead white guy but being Chinese is an obvious expert in Confucius.  What part did I get wrong?  

I don't know anything about doctoral theses but don't the topics seem to be a little disjointed like a number of unrelated works have been cut and pasted together without thought for a central theme - maybe a contrived theme?

Seems the endless babbling of a 'spiritually troubled' new age, stoned female teenager single mother of three who just had a couple pints of beer too many.
It seems the kind of 'philosophy' bizarre teenagers extract by the handful from movies such as the Matrix, Harry Potter or Underworld...
There are experts who spent a lifetime researching only ONE of this many aspects...yet the jackass managed to pound them all together...coherently?
Seriously...not even A.O LOVEJOY's, ABRAMS' or HUIZINGA's masterpiece can hold a candle to Janko's magnum opus...

Like ordering a burger in an Asian restaurant? When covered in sauce the rodent meat isn't bad but it just doesn't taste right in a burger.

Janko's pappy snuffs it. Or it least the guy he thought was his pappy. I would have guessed the milkman, but without a DNA test who really knows?

Not seeing anything to suggest that Japanese-Negro heritage that Janko liked to tout. Maybe when mom snuffs it we'll get more clues. Yeah, right, like Janko wasn't lying about that the same as everything else.

Imagine dear old dad's disappointment when he passed through the Pearly Gates and started looking for his douchebag son Janko. Sorry pop, he went the other direction. At least he'll be nice and warm this winter. And every winter, spring, summer and fall for all eternity.

Louis ran his own business, Hudson TV Sales and Service. He sold and repaired televisions. The business was first located in Detroit, then re-located to Rochester, MI. His business was very important to him, and he devoted many long hours to its success.

Can you repeat the address please?
If dad has anything other than white ancestry, it isn't worth talking about, but that wouldn't stop Janko. Maybe it's like everyone claims Cherokee ancestry, the "my ancestors were on the Trail of Tears" bullshit.
