    OK history buffs... Set it straight for me. Who fiddled while Rome burned?

    No fiddles in 64.

    Nero did play a mean lute, though.

    Nero did do a cool bit of urban renewal on the site of the fire. He built quite the palace there.

    Later emproers took it down, and the lake he installed was the site of the colosseum.
