"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Friday Post

Perhaps we should count ourselves lucky in the UK (in fact, I think that's our problem - we look around the world and tell ourselves that it could be worse!)

Here's something from Fascist Soup that I came across earlier in the week.
"Lawmakers in at least two states are looking to pull the plug on texting pedestrians and iPod-obsessed runners, claiming their diverted attention borders on disaster...The proposal in Arkansas would ban pedestrians from wearing headphones in both ears while on, parallel or adjacent to a street, road, intersection or highway."

Do go and have a look - it's another example of how much our governments love us and want to keep us safe and I'm surprised our own govt hasn't taken it up by now.

Things should be back to normal here in a day or so - this bug is lasting much longer than I expected.  :-(

    Well GV, you did not have to bring it to their notice, did you?

    Slapped wrist, if we ever meet!
