Countdown to Heller: With Bated Breath...
With a little more than twelve hours to go, here's the cover page by Drudge Report editor Matt Drudge as of 8:37 pm edt the evening before Heller.
I believe Captain John Parker had an appropriate word or two as well, as did Colonel (later General) John Stark:
Live free or die. Death is not the worst of evils.

UPDATE 2107 EDT 25 July: Mike Vanderboegh just sent this piece, which speaks for itself:
and all through the dwelling
The sweet odor of Hoppes
Was there for the smelling.
The patches were scrubbing
the bores with light oil.
And all was in readiness,
thanks to the toil.
The bolts were tested
with a "clack-clack-clack,"
In case Justice Kennedy
veered off the track.
Paratus et viglio.
