      I write:
      Something is much odder there in Los Angeles. What is this message of
      yours? "Theory"? It is a particularly acute case of parallelomania you
      suffer from (vide your message, passim), Professor Kessler.

      Which edition of the Iliad mentions Iphigenia's sacrifice? That would be a
      find. Why is not the version of Hesiod, Herodotos, or Euripides preferred,
      which has Iphigenia whisked away by Artemis, some say to Taurus? Are they
      not convenient for this parallel? There's a girl involved, and a guy, so
      you should be able to work with that.

      Try reading the Judges story, which is quite clear: the father does not
      willingly vow his daughter.
