Mick Valentine married Josina Murray on Saturday. He’s a lucky man; she’s a wonderful woman. I’m sure they deserve each other. I wish for them all the very best.

“If we shadows have offended,

Think but this, and all is mended –

That you have but slumbered here

While these visions did appear.

And this weak and idle theme,

No more yielding but a dream,

Gentles, do not reprehend.

If you pardon, we will mend.

And, as I am an honest Puck,

If we have unearned luck

Now to ‘scape the serpent’s tongue,

We will make amends ere long;

Else the Puck a liar call.

So, good night unto you all.

Give me your hands, if we be friends,

And Robin shall restore amends.”

-Shakespeare,

A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

John Pilger, journalist and documentarian, criticized the film [The Hurt Locker] in The New Statesman, writing that “it offers a vicarious thrill via yet another standard-issue psychopath high on violence in somebody else’s country where the deaths of a million people are consigned to cinematic oblivion.” He compared the praise given to The Hurt Locker to the accolades given to 1978’s The Deer Hunter.[42] Continue reading
