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.The protagonist from the movie V for Vendetta, known for wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, begs to differ: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]
[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?)
