Mayan scribes/librarians

Ursula writes \"Here\'s a Story from the New York Times on the very interesting (and often painful) lives of the \"keepers of the royal libraries\" in Mayan culture.\"

They came from the noble class , sometimes from the royal family itself, but, if their king lost, the were captured, humiliated in a public ceremony, mutilated and finally executed.
Seems almost as bad as a the board meetings of today.
