Be Ever Vigilant! Protect Our Freedom!

Friday, July 02, 2010

For want of a nail, the shoe was lost.
For want of the shoe, the horse was lost.
For want of the horse, the rider was lost.
For want of the rider, the battle was lost.
For want of the battle, the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail!

- Old English rhyme

The Arabs have a similar fable about the camel's putting his nose into the tent and then a little more of himself each night until the camel is inside the tent and the rider is outside.

Be ever vigilant and attack the problem at its source before it grows to excessive proportions.
