Thought of the evening (9:00pm)

. . . And thank the Lord
For the temporal sword,
And howling heretics too;
And whatever good things
Our Christendom brings,
But especially barley brew!
-- Hilaire Belloc (from Song of the Pelagian Heresy for the Strengthening of Men's Backs and the Very Robust Out-Thrusting of Doubtful Doctrine and the Uncertain Intellectual, also known as The Pelagian Drinking Song)
