Here We Go 'Round the Prickly Pear

Best T.S. Eliot reference of the day so far:

"Mr. Moussaoui, you came here to be a martyr in a great big bang of glory," U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema said after sentencing the al-Qaida operative to six terms of life imprisonment for conspiracy. "But to paraphrase the poet T.S. Eliot, instead you will die with a whimper."

My sentiments exactly.
