..... the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot."
Was Guy Fawkes a patriot or a villain ..... a martyred saint or the Devil incarnate? It's been more than 400 years since the "Gunpowder Plot" was foiled ..... a date that (under a variety of names) is still marked to this day in England .....
It also provided the foundation for a society of its own, and a popular modern film. On the blogosphere, here is one Brit's view, and a site that helps you make your own Guy Fawkes mask (ala "V for Vendetta") which looks A LOT snazzier than a paper sack over your head, and a blog channeling Fawkes' spirit.
