Comment Dated Mar 4, 2007
"And everybody praised the Duke -- Robert Southey, After Blenheim
"When all its work is done, the lie shall rot;
Who this great fight did win."
"But what good came of it at last?"
Quoth little Peterkin.
"Why, that I cannot tell," said he,
"But 'twas a famous victory."
The truth is great and shall prevail;
When none cares whether it prevails or not."
-- Coventry Patmore, The Unknown Eros, bk.1, canto 12. Magna est Veritas
