From the Washington Post today:

Next up: How Kafakaesque was Kafka? Was Old Blood and Guts really bloody and gutsy? How Platonically lovely was Plato's life? Did Oedipus actually have an Oedipus complex? Was Christ a Christian? Was Buddha a Buddhist?  Did Henry Ford truly practice Fordism? Was Julius Caesar born by Caesarean section? Did Jelly Roll Morton eat jelly rolls? Was Homer really homeless? All this and more in Part 2 of this series.
