'I am hurt, but I am not slain; I'll lay me down and bleed a while, And then I'll rise and fight again.' -- Bleeding my foot; I'm hemorrhaging!

On November 7, 2010 I did a post entitled "The Cracker Squire is a member of a dying breed headed for near extinction unless the Democratic Party finds a way to move back to the middle."

In a November 10, 2004 post I wrote:

It will take more than a little patience, but keep the faith.

In times such as this I recall one of my Scottish favorites, Sir Andrew Barton, for comfort and patience to keep the faith. Barton was in a crucial battle with King Henry VIII, and while injured, encouraged his troops to fight on, saying:

"I am hurt, but I am not slain;
I'll lay me down and bleed a while,
And then I'll rise and fight again."


Actually, Sir Barton's condition that he described merely as being "hurt" involved his having an arrow in his head.

I can relate.
