What better way to imagine real gladiators fighting than experiencing the event yourself. (That or just watch Russel Crowe in Gladiator...jk.) Almost 2,000 years after gladiators fought and died in the Coliseum, millions of visitors will next year be able to witness reenactments the “the sights, sounds and smells” of Ancient Rome. Smells?
Hear the name Jon Favreau and you might think of Vince Vauhn's counterpart in the classic movie Swingers. But look a little closer and you'll instead find a 27 year old speechwriter who's words mean much more than yours or mine. As Obama's chief speechwriter he's in charge of crafting some of Obama's most important speeches, including his inaugural speech that's set… Continue
