Amoeba’s Lorica: Meme-ories 22 (Pride Husbandry)

Kris: “I thought Ares was the Greek god of war?”

Murphy: “He was, and one of the twelve Olympians to boot. Polemus was middle management. He did all the dirty work, and his boss got all the temples and worship.”

Kris: “That doesn’t sound like a recipe for survival in a modern urban fantasy novel.”

Murphy: “Or in the company org chart, then or now. But Polemus is remembered, so he’s luckier than most.”

Kris: “How so? […] Oh. wait. The polemic!

Murphy: “About the only way anybody talks at anybody anymore.”

Kris: “So a polemic – speech, book, podcast, yada – is literally a war of words?”

Murphy: “Yes. Would that they stop there. But with Hubris in full cry …”

Kris: “You’re scaring me.”

Murphy: “You’ve taken this long …?”
