In his account of the Gothic wars Procopius talks
about the Heruli, their history, traditions and customs. He says among
other things that among them was the custom, that when men were decrepit
from old age or sick, that then they were not allowed life. A funeral
pyre was then built and then the one not deemed fit to life was laid on
it. Then they sent after someone not related to him and it was his task

Greece to Build Wall to Keep Out Turks

by Jeff Davis

A
Reuters article reports: “The U.N. refugee agency voiced concern on
Friday that Greece’s proposed 12.5 km-long fence at its border with
Turkey will shut out asylum-seekers fleeing violence and abuse in their
troubled homelands. The fence could lead illegal migrants, including
people in need of international protection, to resort to even riskier
