That wouldn't be the tree of liberty, would it? It seems to be in need of refreshment. (A bit like me).
btw. Here's a pro-tip for all you crims and terrorists out there - use online banking to communicate using small amounts of money as words or page.word amounts for a given reference book. The spooks won't be interfering with the security of online banking lest the banks lobby the govt. to take away the spooks' toys.
