Rommel Drives On Deep Into Egypt

                         -San Francisco Chronicle Headline
                           June 26, 1942

Rommel is dead.
His army has joined the quicksand legions
of history where battle is always
a metal echo saluting a rusty shadow.
His tanks are gone.
How's your ass?

-Richard Brautigan, Rommel Drives On Deep Into Egypt
