Maybe you or one of your readers can explain why the USC Trojans have a horse as their mascot? My God, haven't any of these people read Homer? A horse as a source of pride for the Trojans is analogous to Nixon moving into the Watergate apartments or Napoleon vacationing at Waterloo. Wouldn't they as soon forget?
From the Trojan perspective, the horse should forever be a reminder of their greed, vacuity and egregious arrogance. On second thought, that's everything USC stands for.
