Come in, come in, ye kings, and kiss the feet of God.

 This is a very beautiful song. Merry Christmas to all of you.

The Three Kings
Words by Laurence Housman, music by Healey Willan

"Who knocks tonight so late?"
the weary porter said.
Three kings stood at the gate,
each with a crown on head.

The serving man bowed down,
the Inn was full, he knew.
Said he, "In all this town
is no fit place for you."

A light in the manger lit;
there lay the Mother meek.
This place is fit.
Here is the rest we seek.

Come, come. They loosed their latchet strings,
so stood they all unshod
"Come in, come in, ye kings,
and kiss the feet of God."

Merry Christmas AP. Thanks for the investigative exposes.

Came across this...thought you might find interesting if you haven't seen already.


This caught my eye at the end...
"On November 14, 2002, The New York Times published a column by William Safire in which he claimed "[TIA] has been given a $200 million budget to create computer dossiers on 300 million Americans."
hmmm...sounds like a facebook prototype, eh?
