Caesarean

The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Cæsar. The noble Brutus
Hath told you Cæsar was ambitious;
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Cæsar answer’d it.
The famous lines from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, III, ii, capture the essence of my thoughts over the last 24 hours. The man who thought he was being described as Caesar did both good and ill; much of the good he did was public and the ill was private. But unlike the hapless Brutus, we should not forget Caesar's ambition produced good things that people remembered.
