Today is March 15th, also known as The Ides Of March. In modern times, it is best known as the day the leader of the Roman Empire, Julius Caesar was killed... on March 15, 44 B.C. Caesar was stabbed 23 times to death by a group of conspirators led by Marcus Junius Brutus and Gaius Cassius Longinus. There is also a rock group who call themselves "The Ides of March", who had a hit song called, "Vehicle" in 1970. They chose the name as a joke after their high school teacher made them read Shakespeare's, "Julius Caesar" as an after school punishment..!!
