MR: Stone of Scone

Poster: edh@ascc01.ascc.lucent.com (Alfredo el Bufon)

By chance, I just happened to hear Paul Harvey (the
conservative syndicated radio columnist) say that
the Stone of Scone has been returned!

Why isn't it _all_over_ the news?

Why did it take seven centuries?

Why now, after seven centuries?
(Why not in 1601, when England came under the Scots crown?)

Could this be a prelude to independence?

Noctes atque dies patet atri janua Ditis;|Night and day Pluto's gates are open;
Sed revocare gradum,                     |But to recall your steps,
    superasque evadere ad auras,         |    and climb to the upper air,
Hoc opus, hic labor est.                 |That is the toil, that is the work.
