Not that kind of resistance

My then-girlfriend-and-now-justfriend Melody made this little diorama for her study partner when she was getting her undergraduate EE degree at UT-Austin back in 2003. There’s one more pic on my old personal webpage. It was I who advised her on the spelling; in retrospect, I’m pretty sure it should be “le” instead of “la.”

    Didn’t they pin resistors to their lapels in Turkey to signal they were opposed to the government? Or was it Czechoslovakia? Anybody know?

    “La” is correct, “viva” is wrong. An acute accent (and a bang) would get you all the way there.

    “Vive la Résistance!”
