Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

26 February 2011

Quote of the Day 2/26

"The flag which he [my grandfather, Francis Scott Key] had then so proudly hailed, I saw waving at the same place over the victims of as vulgar and brutal despotism as modern times have witnessed."

Francis Key Howard, a prisoner of Lincoln at Fort McHenry, 1861

The same flag flies there yet, today...
