Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson

Soldier refuses to shake Gordon Brown's hand
Gordon Brown is Prime Minister of the UK. On a recent visit to see the Lads on the front lines, his reception was (ahem) less than cordial.
At least President Obama can tell himself he doesn't have it as bad as Gordie.
