Doing the rounds


Great post by Prodicus about how the PCists have a stranglehold on anything we view and hear.  And to think we let them do it when we weren’t watching.  Example:

Institutions don’t come much more institutional than the Library of Congress. I visited its website looking for a gift for a friend.

Sunday space in time


Rambling and the light of day

Do you ever wake up with a hundred thoughts rushing through the brain and by the time you get up, you’ve lost them? This Sunday, I thought I’d jot them down as and when they whooooshed through, all the better to inflict them on you.

To be a character, you also have to be able to back it up.  David Campese once said [and I paraphrase here] that it’s “OK to be a big mouth if you can back it up on the field and fortunately I can”.   The thing was – he could and sports fans knew what an idiosyncratic star he was.

Every game has them – Botham was another and though the purists disliked him intensely, everyone knew that when he strode to the centre of the field, things were about to happen.
