"Remember, Remember the Fifth of November..."

It's interesting, after yesterday's election of Barack Obama, that today is Guy Fawkes Day, which I first became aware of when I read V for Vendetta.

Some quotes from the film version of that graphic novel resonate with me today...

"Fear became the ultimate tool of this government."

"Did you think to kill me? There's no flesh or blood within this cloak to kill. There's only an idea. Ideas are bulletproof."

There is nothing more odd than seeing a bunch of little British children pushing decorated strollers around the streets of London, collecting candy in celebration of man who was hanged for almost blowing up the Parliament!
