A Nation of Caners*

No copyright on titles. *Del Amitri on the Writer's Den Musical Time Machine this morning. So I've nicked a title of a song from their latest album (I know, I thought they'd given up too, until I went to see them live in September). And we are... So, not about very much.

Heroes

Even when I was in, I thought the Greenham protestors had a right to their protest. I remember it as being mostly peaceful. It went on a long time and they did win in the end. The length of the protest was probably why. Patience is a great weapon. Tempus omnium edax rerum. I shudder to think how it would have been in the age of social media. Anyway, this isn't about Greenham. It's (all) about me. Image author's own.

stuff. How marvellous that Spartak Moscow is quite a villainous chap, as back in the bad old days their football team was full of soldiers who were quite villainous themselves.

I do like the bold type for certain things that would have...
