Doomsters and Cassandra and Smart Alecks

I wish Fox Business would provide the embed coding for their videos, but all I have is this link to this an interview I did on Tuesday with Dennis Kneale.

This would have been a really good interview, except for the fact that I tried to get cute at the very top. What I remembered of Cassandra from ancient Greek literature was her predicting that Agamemnon would be killed by Clytemenstra. So when Dennis read his into and mentioned Troy, I tried to prove how smart I was. Dumb.

But, I am nothing if not honest. So I looked it up, saw my mistake, and later tweeted this out to Dennis:

That said, I really don't remember her being mentioned in the Iliad, or the Odyssey for that matter.
