Hi Listers.

* For the non-classically inclined: "Et tu, Brute?" was Caesar's closing
line when he discovered that his trusted Brutus (the anglicized form of the
Latin Brute) had knifed him too, along with the others who had lined up to
make Caesar salad.

The form "Brute" is the Vocative of Brutus (2nd decl. masc.) used to address people in Latin.
