My bold peasantry friends

In these troubling times, I am reminded from Oliver Goldsmith:

Ill fares the land, to hastening ills a prey,
Where wealth accumulates, and men decay;
Princes and lords may flourish, or may fade;
A breath can make them, as a breath has made;
But a bold peasantry, their country’s pride,
When once destroyed, can never be supplied.

  1. I really like the new theme. It’s clean and un-cluttered and you can concentrate on areas that interest you. Nice looking site.

  2. Thanks, I found it looks best at higher resolutions.
