for illustration friday ... {run}

Pizarro -- like all the conquistadors -- arrived like a disaster. His little army of less than two hundred adventurers plundered an Inca empire of over five million. Those who didn't run (the Inca king Atahuallpa was captured and imprisoned, tried to buy his freedom with rooms filled with gold; in the end the Spaniards strangled him) died in heaps from a smallpox epidemic. When I look at Pizarro's picture, all I can think is: danger.
