First things first: in order to make better use of the Newly Wed blog jointly authored by Country Mouse and myself I'm going to post our weekend jaunts and photo essays over there from now on. The latest post is an account of our past weekend at Susan and Andy's wedding in Bootbay Harbor. This also means that this blog can draw down to its original focus of whatever garbage is running through my head at any given time.

Second, Infinite Thought has some interesting points about the recent terrorism raids in London and the quietly shrinking magnitude of the alleged threat. Much of the detail included in the New York Times story she cites is unavailable in the UK for legal reasons (the sub judice convention prevents the publication of material potentially prejudicial to a defendant's pending or ongoing case) and from many US outlets due to the gnat-like attention spans of the mainstream news organizations and the fact that it doesn't fit the overarching "holy-shit-they-want-to-kill-us-all" narrative so beloved of said organizations. It's worth a read.
