At the risk of a charge of serious lack of seriousness in finding time for
serendipity but not for engagement with on-going OPE-L debates, I though the
list might be interested in the very early provenance of my chosen tag.
According to a recent story in The Guardian newspaper, a 1st century Norman monk

"A monastery without a library is like a castle without an armoury."

I wonder if that is where the 1970s British SWP got the idea from.
