+# last year DPL campaign strikes back
+
+You might remember that
+[[last year I standed for DPL|hacking/debian/dpl-2009]], ... and yeah, it
+didn't go well :-)
+
+A funny event of last week is that **[LWN](http://lwn.net) has taken a
+quotation of mine** from the campaign, to become part of the
+**[Linux and free software timeline](http://lwn.net/op/TimelineIdx.lwn)**.
+**[The quotation](http://lwn.net/Articles/364937/bigpage#apr)** is on
+[last week LWN issue](http://lwn.net/Articles/364937/bigpage#apr), and has been
+extracted from
+[a reply of mine](http://lists.debian.org/debian-vote/2009/03/msg00245.html) to
+a
+[question posed by AJ on -vote](http://lists.debian.org/debian-vote/2009/03/msg00198.html).
+
+Looking back, that quotation sounds a tad sad, but true nevertheless.
+
+<small>(The purpose of this post?
+[Vanity](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecclesiastes#Vanity), what else?)<br />
+... and thanks to Faidon for having spotted the quotation!</small>
