In older, and more civilized times, when men failed as entirely as you have, they would fall down on their swords.”

“Well, I don’t have a sword.”

—The Operative, from Serenity (Joss Whedon)

I would like to annnounce the “Sword for Mr. Blagojevich” campaign — an effort by the Angry Men to provide Mr. Blagojevich with what he so desperately needs. Contributions may be made to the 12 Angry Men, care of Legends (Champaign, IL) where we will use the funds to obtain and send to Mr. Blagojevich a fine katana. We are sure that we will be able to find an operative of the parliament to assist in its use.
