    ...are doomed to repeat it." So goes the much used and paraphrased saying coined by Spanish writer George Santayana from his Reason in Common Sense "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

    One of this morning's headlines features the organisational ingredients and components of an Iraq War Protest scheduled in Washinton DC, and ........here's Jane. What does on call déjà vu which actually does happen again? Will demonstators lobbying congress people on Monday, over 5 million hits on their website last month, war veterans speaking out against the war accomplish anything to move this administration off an irresponsibly devastating course?

    Deja vu, as in "already seen" :)

    Sorry, I'm a pedantic twunt ;)

    Hey, I'm the pedantic twunt around here: it's actually déjà vu. Get your diacriticals sorted.
