something like an electronic meme it would be so much
easier for me. I could say with the pompous head high
that I am more like my angel and I prefer not to be
engaged in memes, no desire to contribute to them, or be

angel, then there's a splendid opportunity to watch
memes or perhaps #hashtags in action.

Britain's odious prime minister is preparing his nation for
British casualties. An American rock band was playing. It
was Friday, a great many people enjoying their evening.
Germany and France were playing a friendly game of soccer,
which could be of interest to the ancient historian. It's a
sadness, a waste. And I suspect the response will be a
familiar series of #hashtags. My own would be attributed to
Norman Rich #PeaceIsLearnedNotTaught.
