One day in 2000, the store’s co-owner, Stuart Manley, was searching through a dusty box of books that were bought at auction, when he found a folded-up piece of paper at the bottom. He took the paper out, opened it and showed it to his wife and business partner, Mary Manley. Neither of them had seen it before. It said: “Keep Calm and Carry On.” As the BBC’s Stuart Hughes later put it, “the simple five-word message is the very model of British restraint and stiff upper lip.”
For if it profit, none dare call it Treason.

Very charming..helps to explain Brittan's nanny-state attitude some to me also.

It was an odd coincidence with much contrast that the next vid on my morning watch-list this am was this movie trailer - a modern dark comedy take on Falling Down:

In the States, we overreact, and carry-on.

Or is it, we react to create carrion..? :rolleyes: ;)
