Remember

November 5, 2009

Guy Fawkes
Remember, remember the fifth of November.

Allison Kilkenny at Huffington Post says this year's Guy Fawkes Day protesters finally got it right:

[T]he residents of the Houses of Power should not raise their brows in surprise when a flaming effigy floats by them.

It's just a sign that the people finally recognize the true villains of history

— and it's not some dead dude who wore a funny hat. [Kilkenny]

The protagonist from the movie V for Vendetta, known for wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, begs to differ:

[T]ruth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

Is there any ground at all between ineffectual protests against entrenched power and killing the high chancellor, dying, and having your protege blow up parliament?  I'm up for a 5th of November beer.  (It's a start, right?)

    That’s a cool hat. I wonder if they have an Oddjob model.
