I have been suffering from writer's block over the past week or so, and offer my apologies for the lack of posts. The block was brought on by two things:
1) World events were developing so rapidly that most of what I was writing was immediately subsumed by the tide of reality.
2) Work has been insane, with the instigation of the new Department of Energy and Climate Change having a major impact on my brain and body.
I can't see either of those things easing off any time soon, but I have been determined to contribute to the Blog Action Day on poverty taking place on October 15th, so I am preparing a post for that now. These are apt times to be talking about poverty, sad to say, as are all times.
But please excuse me first while I take some duck tape and lash it around the mouths of Sirs Bono and Bob Geldof.
