Several things need blogging about and there is not enough time. There is Walter Cronkite's death as well as Leszek Kolakowski's and the need to weigh up their separate achievements, Cronkite's, I am glad to say, collapsing as we speak.
I have been reminded that not enough has been written about Honduras and western reaction to the ousting of the president who was attempting to undermine the country's constitution.
Then there are the anniversaries: today is the anniversary of the July Plot, the unsuccessful attempt on Hitler's life; tomorrow is the anniversary of Neil Armstrong making that small step for man and giant step for mankind.
As I said, talk amongst yourselves while I get my thoughts together.
