    When Alaric the Goth stood before the gates of Rome, he made the following demand of the Senate:

    "Deliver to me all the gold that your city contains, all the silver, all the treasures that may be moved, and in addition all your slaves of barbarian origin; otherwise I will not desist from the siege."

    "But if you take all these things," said one of the ambassadors, "what do you leave for the citizens?"

    Alaric responded simply, "Your lives."

    I sing it as:

    This land is my land.
    This land is my land.
    Each blade of grass, and
    Each grain of sand.
    If you don't like it,
    Go get your own land.
    This land belongs to me, me, me.

    The work crews have finished replacing damaged concrete on curbs and driveway entrances; it's also said that they are to also start repaving our street, but I'm not holding my breath.
