For some reason, this song came back to me recently. It is ‘Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner’ by Warren Zevon. As I pointed out some time ago, I like the line, ‘The deal was done in Denmark, on a dark and stormy day’.

But as a friend in China pointed out recently, the relevant line now is: ‘Now it’s ten years later, but he still keeps up the fight’. What should be added here is China, since I think it is great that the communist party is the government of China. As a recent application to the Tiananmen management committee’s propaganda department put it (for filming in relation to Chinese Marxism), I am a friend of China and especially the CPC. Which is a long way of saying that I simply claim this song as my own.
