So, stuff’s been happening. The news seems to be falling apart.
I could do some sort of write-up about the ever-increasing flurry of scandals that began with the News of the World’s collapse, but it’s not like pointing out the horribleness of some of the horrible things some people did will really bring anything new to the discussion. I am utterly devoid of unique insight, and if you’re relying on me for providing basic news-gathering services on something this big, you’ve got problems.
The one thing I will say is that John Finnemore’s editorial on Radio 4’s The Now Show was an absolute blinder:
There’s also an extended transcript here. He knows how to say words good.
I know that’s not much to leave you with, given my relative silence this past week, but I’ve only gone and been and done and gone and got myself a girlfriend, who’s become something of a focus of mine, and at this particular moment is rather more interesting than you lot. No offense. You’re still great. She’s just better. Her name’s Kirsty and she’s a nurse and she has a cat with no teeth.
So, how’s your week been? (I don’t actually care. A girl likes me.)
