Mark their names well


Mark their names and mark them well.
For them, no minstrel raptures swell.
High though their titles,
proud their name,
boundless their wealth as wish can claim,
these wretched figures shall go down to the vile
dust from whence they sprung,
unwept,
unhonored,
and unsung.

Garrison Keillor paraphrasing Sir Walter Scott on the support for torture.

This land is your land and this land is my land, sure, but the world is run by those that never listen to music anyway. ___Bob Dylan

1. Turning and turning...
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold

the ceremony of innocence is drowned.

- William Butler Yeats
