Readers write - a noteworthy comment by an Anonymous reader.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Resolution by Vernon Council - to help us, country...":

Prior to this declaration, I would have been up in the dark of night fretting-- peaking out the window at the ominous roseate glow sullying the night sky above our suitor to the north. I would have been desperately clutching my worry beads, working them down to pathetic little nubs: anxious about the clever skills and glossy rhetoric used by such a voracious entity.

Once, their singular resolve, and arrogance would have taken my breath away.

However, this fever to facilitate an unwelcome, arranged marriage with country cousins who are well past the blushing-bride stage, is so beyond the pale, so against the principles of democracy, so contrary to any kind of rational economic, cultural, and social theory, that I can only consider it laughable.

To the uninitiated. this ardent pursuit might be perceived as flattery. Your offer might very well be accepted by some less attractive prospect. Be sure though: we are hard-bitten, and have not been without a few suitors in the past.

We can see that you do not truly want us for our charms, but rather, for our goats and sheep.
