In response to yesterday’s post about celebrating the good in society (as opposed to merely publicising and glamourising the bad), here’s a news article about a 19 year old who talked a woman out of commiting suicide by offering her a hug. Okay, there’s probably more to it than that, but it’s still a great Good Samaritan story.
Meanwhile, in a blow for justice…. Well, okay, there’s probably elements of the politics of envy of going on here, but don’t mess with London traffic wardens!
And while we’ve been talking about what the country might be building for the future, and as that discussion spun off from some posts on folklore, here’s something I wrote a while back about a unified field theory of TV characters. I suspect I might have been losing my mind at that point, but what the heck, I think it might work!
