MR: Stone of Scone
Poster: firstname.lastname@example.org (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?
Alfredo el Bufon
Elvegast, Windmaster's Hill, Atlantia
Facilis descensus Averni; |The descent to Avernus is easy;
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.
-- Publius Vergilius Maro | -- Virgil
