In the middle of a Tempest.

Back later.

Here's summat pretty to look at while you wait.

Remember those posters in the 70's, with the wee kitty cat, hanging from a tree branch that said, "Hang in there, Baby. Friday's Coming"? Horrible, I know.

Had easy duplication of art prints been available at the time, the mid-1800's, when the Preraphaelite brotherhood was going strong, posters like those featuring our Miranda here would have carried the same message. Imagine the wee 'uns coming home from a hard day at the boot-blacking factory, or textile mill, taking hope that the end was, indeed, near. Because an early death of consumption might very well make that true.

Hang in there, Baby.

Can't beat Shakespeare when it comes to puns--so I won't try.

But... how would the waifs know that they were doomed to croak on Friday? Stop me if I've completely misunderstood this...
