Happy birthday...

...Robert Burns, Bard of Ayrshire, 251 years young today! In Scotland, mere mention of "the Bard" refers foremost to him, not William Shakespeare as is common elsewhere.

Yet further proof of the barbarism that hangs heavy over this land of my current residence, I cannot yet enjoy a proper Burns supper. Scottish haggis is banned in the US owing BSE fears. Yet, whisky, which carries far greater health risks, flows freely. So it's a liquid lunch for me today in his honour! I'm sure Burns himself would well appreciate the irony.
