Help me choose a Latin book, please.

I'm teaching Latin at a sort of community college setting. A lot of older learners, people who aren't sure why they're there, miss a lot of classes, etc. I've been using Wheelock's, which I know well, but this is only appropriate for determined learners or college students. [more inside]

Translation from medical latin....

This phrase: "dilaceratio cruris sin Vulcera centusel. multipl." appears on a German birth certificate from the 1940s. Am I right to guess that it means something like "multiple wounds in the leg without ulcers"? If so, what are "ulcers" in this context? Infections?

Looking for a specific Cuban Restaurant in Detroit area

If my memory serves me (it often does not), awhile ago I went to a Cuban restaurant in the suburbs of Detroit (probably north) that I'd like to find again. I remember that it was small (seating-wise), non-chain, not very fancy, off a very small (residential?) street and the food was great; I think the interior was yellow and there was writing on the walls everywhere. It was popular and full when I was there last. I've done by due diligence with google and yelp but haven't found it there; I don't think it's Vincente's (downtown) or El Guanaco (Troy); any ideas? I'm open to suggestions in the area if you don't know the specific restaurant. Thanks!

List of simple word roots

I am looking for a text file of a list of words (roughly the 5000-10000 most common English words) and their root word and root word language. My Google Fu only turns up single words or pages that I can type in a word to get to another page to get the etymology. Wikipedia has some stuff, but it is sorted by language root, which is not what I am looking for. I would like to have a long list of words in a text file so that I can manipulate it programatically. Comma separated or whatever, any format would be great. Here is one use case: Yoke - [list of words that have yoke in the etymological history] (Many, many many English words come from the root work for Yoke.) All answers appreciated!

Ars longa, vita brevis - how to modify?

Latin-speakers! I'm writing an article about the short-lived nature of media today and I'm hoping to repurpose "Ars longa, vita brevis," either switching ars and vita (i.e. life is long and art is short), or having both be ars (i.e. art is both long and short). I'm not at all sure this can be done while retaining the essential four-word structure of the saying. Does "ars longa, ars brevis" work? Do I need "est" in there (I'd rather not)? Do I need to change the declension?
