 >>All characters - save Cassius - speak with admiration of the "great" 
Caesar....

 >But, LS, what about:

 >--Caska? whose hands speak even more cuttingly;
 >--Decius? the other Brutus, who can o'ersway and bend the flattered 
Caesar to his will;
 >--party-poopers Flavius and Murellus? put to silence by a Caesar 
triumphant over Pompey's blood;
 >--Plebeians 1 &3? who blow with the oratorical wind;
 >--young Cato? the foe to tyrants;
 >--Marcus Brutus? who admiringly murders his natural father, the 
unhatched serpent, for his ambition, that same evil spirit lurking 
inside the son as well;
 >--and finally Antony, yes Antony, Caesar's avenger, his Lupercal 
errand boy, who projects that festering resentment onto Lepidus?

Busted!  My haste betrayed me. Thanks for yanking my chain.
