SOOTHSAYER: Beware the Ides of March.The Ides of March 2006 bring a triple witching for supporters of free enterprise and growth on the Palouse.
CAESAR: What man is that?
BRUTUS: A soothsayer bids you beware the Ides of March.
CAESAR: Set him before me; let me see his face.
CASSIUS: Fellow, come from the throng; look upon Caesar.
CAESAR: What say'st thou to me now? Speak once again.
SOOTHSAYER: Beware the Ides of March.
CAESAR: He is a dreamer; let us leave him. Pass.
-- Julius Caesar - Act I, Scene II
But do not despair and be of stout heart. Another verse from the Bard of Avon seems appropriate here:
PARD has just announced yet another appeal of the Pullman Wal-Mart Supercenter project. The Moscow City Council is set to appeal the Hawkins Companies development in the Pullman-Moscow Corridor by Friday. The Moscow Planning & Zoning Commission last week denied the request to rezone 77 acres for a Wal-Mart Supercenter there.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more,Or in the words of another great Englishman:
Or close the wall up with our English dead!
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility;
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger:
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood.
--Henry V - Act III, Scene I
Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
