re-emerging from a phase where all my newspaper reading time was absorbed by trying to understand each day how the UK government survived the previous 24 hours, I'm rediscovering there is a world out there, though it hasn't changed all that much:
* the Miami 5 are still in jail
* Roman Abramovich is still obscenely rich, even with the financial crisis and all that. Btw, I completely missed that part of recent history after the collapse of the Soviet Union, when all those billions were handed out to those people we now call "Russian Oligarchs". Does anybody understand why and how that happened ?
* oh, and the heir to the throne is still making life hell for architects
very depressing all that. Maybe the recent political crisis with its duck houses and failed coup attempts was more entertaining after all.
