I have a confession of ignorance to make. I know nothing about Sauron, Isildur, Narsil, Luke Skywalker, Aragorn, Gandalf, Boromir, Arthur, Elendil, and Anduril. I do know about Winston Churchill, whose bust was returned to the British by Obama in one of his first acts as president. I do know about Bill Whittle, who writes about all of the above in an essay this morning, linked to by Glenn Reynolds.
Bill is urging us to "fight them," to be king; not forever, just for today."
