I guess "Hurry up please, it's time." has come to the end
of its illustrious life. London has taken off the closing requirements
of the pubs. It was interesting to note that that closing law was
originally imposed in WWI (sorry Nancy, but that's yet another
WWI resonance) to keep the workers in munitions factories
from getting drunk -- or so the Euronews report would have
it.

Cheers,
