    And the gods of the copybook headings limped up to explain it once more.

    I’m waiting for the gods of the copybook headings with terror and slaughter to return. Because, well. It’s all there in Kipling.

    Rudyard Kipling knew. Explained in the modern vernacular. Everything old is new again. Some things are true and timeless.
