Here's what I reckon: I reckon that if you're saying we shouldn't politicise a tragedy (by asking the only people who have anything approaching actual power to do something about it, incidentally) then you should forfeit the right to use the politics of the second amendment in support of your arguments.

Making little Lego people for Pandemic is the best idea I've stolen from the Internet in ages.

Pictured here are the Researcher and the Contingency Planner, for whom I have a new-found respect after my son used the special skill to double up on some timely airlifts and crucial government grants to win the game.

For those puzzled by grief this morning, their own or someone else's, over someone they never met or talked to, here's a metaphor:

Singers, poets and wordsmiths are the lighthouses that guide us through the dark nights and troubled waters of adolescence and beyond. Most of the time the brilliance is distant, a comforting luminance by which to mark our place and navigate. Every once in a while, though, the lighthouse swings round to make that direct and dazzling connection, perfectly and personally illuminating us in our little boats, and it is in these moments that we see, find and know ourselves all at once.

For me, one of these moments was this song, live in Istanbul in 2009.
