All Hell Breaks Loose

I was away for a few days in Somerset for a friend's wedding.  While there, human life, in all its horror, broke out across the world, oddly clashing with the sunlight and champagne of a rural English marriage.  Norway's madness, Chinas' train collision, Amy Winehouse's senseless death, and a serial killer ex-Marine in the US, as well as several other tragedies, alongside the famine in Africa, seemed to render an already-fragile sense of optimism shattered.  Yet, here I am, it is Sunday, it is sunny, and I am writing this.  The world wobbles on.  I will post more on some of this later.
