But he was an opium junkie, so...
Up since 5:30. Have ingested much tea. In fact, am feeling kind of geeked. But I am closing in on Laud. Man, I never knew that Coleridge was such a religious firebrand! He says things like this about poor old Laud all the time:
“O Heavens! what a Leash of Patron Saints have the Tory Clergy fixed on for the Anglican Church!...Archbishop Laud, the St. Dominic of the semi-Protestant High Church, the vindictive, hot-headed, narrow-minded, superstitious Bigot – who having sacrificed the peace and prosperity of the Realm to his Monkish Follies, and kindled the flames of Civil War in three Kingdoms, died remorseless with a self-approving Conscience.”
Burn! I guess he told you, Laud!
More tea. Must....have.....more.....tea. (And maybe a bagel!)
