(Last) Quote of the (Fri)day

It should come as no surprise to the smattering of people who still check in here on the odd occasion that the political ramblings of this blog have withered and gone away. Perhaps it is the general summer malaise. Perhaps it is a sense that the purpose of Ahab's musings has finally run its course. Perhaps, as Benedick so memorably says in Much Ado, "I am so attired in wonder, I know not what to say."

All of which is to say that it is time to "Hang up the Hyatt" and go on a bit of a sabbatical, until the embers of the fire call out to hit the keyboard once more. Soon there will be busy months ahead as the "professional" career begins in earnest, and a level of seriousness begins to pull rank on the quixotic.

But, of course, we'll be back - later - and maybe even in a grand re-united effort of the old contributors as well. When those 2008 Candidate Profiles finally get completed, eh Coop? In the mean time, here's a closing quote and an apt philosophy, stolen graffiti art outside Strange Adventures comic shop on Sackville Street. Enjoy, and stay well until next time.

Gentlemen: A Toast! To Chivalry!

May Common Sense ne'er quell our love for high hearted adventurings, nor dull expediency prevent our doing brave, splendid, foolish deeds. May we ever serve romance as we ride errant to and fro about a sunlit world. If we be not always wise, God send that we at least be admirable.

To Chivalry!

- Prince Valiant, Knight of the Table Round, Court of the Good King Arthur

It was fun while it lasted. I hope you're still involved with Iggy.

Know that you're well out of this, James, but if you've anything to say after the events of Saturday morning/afternoon/evening, it'll be awfully interesting to read...

My aunt referred me here (a year or so ago?) because you quoted m'man (poetry) and I try to come back faithfully. Please come back, kindred spirit!
