Yes, a very interesting article--especially in light of the rampage in France.
Wonder what any French readers would think of this?

I'm almost inclined to agree with "Condor" on this; but I think--IMSHO--that the real celebration should wait until true victory is achieved in the WoT (such as it is/such as it will be/if ever/God willing/etc.)

Yes, when that day comes--if ever--bonfire celebrations would be great... I *hope* that day *does* come, and hope that we won't have to wait long for it.
