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.

...and Asparagirl is our queen
Lucas and I are going to have lots of fun working our way through this.

Update: SPOILER ALERT. Well, perhaps not technically so, because the people who wrote the essay Asparagirl links to don't really know whether they're right or not. But they've got me convinced. So if it would bother you to have the biggest surprise of the series possibly revealed to you in advance, don't risk reading it.
