They were those who had left their families behind as they pursued the truth, opting to go to jail when the government hounded them to reveal their sources. Men and women that would rather quit than write editorials the management wanted them to write. Journalists who never wrote a word they would have to disown. Journalists who took their last breath as they wrote an article was true to what they believed in. They would never sit down and take stock of the stories they had covered and written saying, "So what if twenty of these are non-stories, I at least had five I believed in."

Quell'estate, secondo il nuovo computo degli anni che ci hanno insegnato i cristiani, era il 497 dopo la nascita di Cristo, ed era un'estate radiosa, splendente di sole.Artù era al vertice, Merlino si scaldava le ossa nel nostro giardino e le nostre tre figlie insistevano perché raccontasse loro sempre nuove storie, Ceinwyn era felice, Ginevra si godeva il suo elegante palazzo nuovo, con i portici e le colonne e il tempio nascosto.Lancillotto se ne stava tranquillo nel suo regno accanto al mare, i sassoni si combattevano tra loro invece di lottare contro di noi, e la Dumnonia era in pace.Eppure, quella del 497 fu anche, come ben ricordo, un'estate di vergogna e di dolore.Fu l'estate di Tristano e Isotta."
Author: Bernard Cornwell
