The Rising of The Moon?
This site is far too respectable a place to say what I'm thinking about the defence of of our wildernesses. Were our servers located in Chechnya and if our leader was a bearded character with lions and tigers as pets; were I not still an Officer of the Court with a house yet unseized by my creditors, then I might well commit my thoughts to print. Although tactically it might not be prudent to warn the mountain disrespectors of my detailed plans. When I blow I don't intend it to be a polite "green" event. Let the mountain Luddites, the Buachaillí Bána and The Peep O'Day Boys reconvene. No. I bite my tongue.
