well..wonderland has lost another proud veteran..ironically on memorial day..i guess he would have wanted it that way..suffering with crippling arthritis i guess he taught us all how to live.. he will be missed daily in wonderland and we will remember what a good man he was..
anyway..a small shakesperean tribute to l b from henry v ..
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.
