Since the federal reserve was created in 1913 we've had two world wars, endless police actions, and all sorts of stupid nonsense, such as 1 million Iraqis dying in George Bush's bid to give Iraqis a measure of US-style freedom.
But sometimes we've got to step back and stop suffering from it all so much, at least until we can take a breath before we try to stop the American and British governments killing so many other people in their bid to extend western democracy to the rest of the world.
So I thought I might take a moment out from all of this needless slaughter to say, hey, isn't it great that this year the daffodils are out again? Flowers. They're brilliant. And I love them. Thank the Lord for the English countryside. Marvellous.
