I have to say that it seems, after a little contemplation, that the english
translation is something like "The morals of the people are not a safe
place; the morals of the people are a hidden land."
Be warned, my Latin is also rusty; so that's as close as I'm willing to put
muself to. However, the "Muri" piece might also have translated as "mice".
And that really didn't seem to fit. ;)
I'll gte back to you once I've done a little deeper examination.
What am I doing here
and the rest of me
still in bed
with tea bags...?
