"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
And I thought I was the only one celebrating.
I expect I'll turn one over later this evening.
In honor of the great man, I repeat some lines from the tail end of his great story:The Road goes ever on and on Out from the door where it began.Now far ahead the Road has gone, Let others follow it who can!Let them a journey new begin, But I at last with weary feetWill turn towards the lighted inn, My evening-rest and sleep to meet.Professor Tolkien has long since ended his journey on the The Road, but we still remember him fondly.
So, 5 years from now do we get to celebrate his Eleventy First birthday?
"Tolkien's Webley .455 service revolver was put on display in 2006 as part of a Battle of the Somme exhibition in the Imperial War Museum..." (From the Wikipedia article)Man, tell me that wouldn't be a revolver to have in your collection...
