<< Portico: Why Portico? And Uti-whatsit?


Why Portico? And Uti-whatsit?

I originally wanted "Porcius" to be the address of this blog, since it is my pseudonym in a number of online communities. Some guy in Alberta has it though, and is using it to write a decent daily blog. So I went for "Cato" and it was taken too, though the blog it's attached to seems to be inactive. So I went with Uticensis, the honorific title given to Marcus Porcius Cato the Younger after his suicide at Utica. (The younger Cato is a hero of mine.)

Portico is just Latin for doorway, and some vain side of me hoped that this blog could be a doorway for some people into something.
