    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

    Re: the Spartan Way of Death

    This review ( which is not an essay on Spata) tells us about the movie but not about the Spartan way of death. What was the "Spartan way of death" in 480 BCE terms? This piece does not explain that phrase. Thus the title is misleading and the piece is NOT what I expected from the title. As a teacher, I'd give this writer a low mark because the body of the work did not deal with the title of the essay.

      That seems a little harsh given who wrote the piece. It is just a title, the sub-heading makes it clear what the article is actually about.

        Also, in the newspapers, the guy who wrote the article don't necessarily get to decide the title. Often, it's the night editor or the copy editor who decides on the title to use. That's why sometimes you get a title that says one thing, but when you read the article, it really says another!
