I’m not finished with Iran just yet, so expect the next installment on our bamboozlement Real Soon Now.
That’s ‘cuz I want to talk about family history.
As in, my illustrious forebears were… the biggest bunch of scum that ever graced a family tree – or at least swung from one. They all should have been drowned at birth. Thieves and cattle rustlers. We were the biggest bunch of pirates you ever saw.
Of course, that was pretty much lifeÂ with the border clansÂ of Scotland and England. And, we wereÂ big on horses – probably because we stole ’em. Â
And, our clan badge. You gotta love this one:
Badge of Clan Little circa 1600s
(means: Concede Nothing)Â
You’d think that we were Pales-…
Which is why this diatribe belongs here.
The forebears of the current batch of Palestinians were the biggest bunch ofÂ pirates you ever saw. No one was safe traveling through Palestine unless you brought lots of armed guards.Â
I guess that’s whatÂ Clan Little had to be proud of. If you were traveling into Scotland, you’d better have brought LOTS of guards – ‘cuzÂ Clan Little was there.Â Â
