Panic In The Streets

Let us not compare riots - Haiti is currently facing tragedy as it collapses into cholera-induced anarchy - and the international cyber-rioting against major online retailers continues - so that some paint and such thrown at the future King of England and his wife might seem small beer.  Except, let us catch our breath, and reflect: when was the last time that Royalty in England was in such immediate peril?  We now have a face for this upsurge of rage against these pitiless penny-pinching prunings.  Students of the world unite!  Meanwhile, China has shown itself to be Philistine Numero Uno for its bald and bold retorts to the Nobel prize.  What a week.  Just wait until Burma gets nukes...

Dear Todd

Charles and Camilla encountering the (non stage-managed) general public on their way to the London Paladium gave us all a vicarious whiff of what life might have been like during the French and Russian revolutions.

Best wishes from Simon
