    There's an old Irish proverb:

    ferr doairm diairm - "Better badly armed than weaponless"

    (Of course, it's best to be well-armed if you can be!)

    Actually it's one of Cooper's most incisive analogies. Amazing that it is not understood by some.

    Thanks for telling us who said it Skidmark, I didn't know that before. Always loved the quote though.

    The Old Irish spelling is different. Anyone for a short grammer lesson?

    'ferr' you recognized, it means "better".

    'Arm' is a word the Irish borrowed from Latin, in Old Irish it can mean either armor or weapon.

    'do-' is a perjorative prefix, (as in 'dodelba' - misshapen, badly formed). 'doairm' = "badly armed".

    'di-' is a negative prefix, (as in 'digrád' - dislike). 'diairm' = "unarmed".

    Here's another one, 'deg-' is a prefix that means the opposite of 'do-', so 'degairm' means "well-armed"

    'Ní dlig degairm fer cen gliaid' - "A man without fight does not deserve to be well-armed"

    Okay, I'm finished showing off. BTW, TallPine you've got a great tag-line.
