After a somewhat discouraging day battling with the folks over at Wikipedia regarding the peace movement article (it was "speedily deleted" for lack of "meaningful content" - see this page - they're kidding, right?) - I awoke to find this in my mailbox today. It was no accident this fell in my lap.

When I read his poetic words on Tricotine's peace globe, I was inspired all over again.
