Dagger in hand

A man of prodigious fortune, coming to add his opinion to some light discussion that was going on casually at his table, began precisely thus: "It can only be a liar or an ignoramus who will say otherwise than," and so on. Pursue that philosophical point, dagger in hand.

--Michel de Montaigne, Of the art of discussion.

I'm outta here...
My family's going on vacation again, and this time I even get to go with them. It's up to northern Cal for granny's 80th. The extended family is converging for some RVing through Yosemite, Gold Country, etc., culminating in the Big Bash in Ferndale. You won't be hearing from me till September.
