I have heard talk on the wireless and seen occasional mention in Her Majesty's Press that there is something going on somewhere else in the world today that is of potential global import. I believe it's on the telly but as I don't have a telly I will have to trust the other media. Apparently comedians the whole world over are gathering, AT THIS VERY MOMENT in Washington to mourn the passing of their material.
Also, it may be only be me that is this cynical but could the Isreali Army have possibly withdrawn from Gaza on account of suddenly realising that the most powerful voting lobby in the US might no longer be the Jewish one? Ponder.
