today is Guy Fawkes Day. He is our most notorious traitor. 36 Barrells of gunpowder and he and his mates tried to blow up the Houses of Parliment in 1605. Now we have huge bonfires and fireworks. and we wonder what we are celebrating; the capture and execution of a traitor? Or are we honouring the fact that he was trying to do away with the government?
sometimes i think we lean towards the latter.
