Thanks to World Beater for calling me that. I am not, however, hungover and not being lazy is why my posting rate has slumped. I face a mountain of work. I shall continue to blog but probably not so much in the mornings. I have to read most of the London Library - a great and eccentric institution whose metal floors result in perversely pleasurable static shocks as one browses - and I read better in the mornings so my postings will probably come later. It doesn't seem to matter whether I post or not. Nige's erudite posts are keeping up the traffic at commendable levels. Perhaps I shall try to keep you informed from my reading. Actual news seems to be passing me by. I have observed, however, that all male television presenters now look like estate agents. This may be because, as Nige has observed, their natural trade is going under. Or because the estate agent look - perfect hair, tight suits, noisy ties, bland but criminal features - is regarded as some kind of ideal.
