The Rundown for Wednesday, June 16th 2010

Mistress Internet reveals her hidden delights in response to my tender ministrations:

    In a Gaelic lament for the slain at Culloden the MacGillivrays are spoken of as:
    “The warlike race,
    The gentle, vigorous, flourishing,
    Active, of great fame, beloved,
    The race that will not wither, and has descended
    Long from every side,
    Excellent MacGillivrays of the Doune”.
