The dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present...

A drive-by post, fired into the ether between bursts of proposal writing, to say three things:

1. Roy Greenslade is absolutely right. This piece in today's Guardian is precisely what I've been trying to say for the past seven years of blogging, here and elsewhere. Amen, Roy, amen.

2. Delighted to hear that Doc is out of danger, out of hospital, and blogging up an insightful storm.

3. Never, ever feed the trolls. You're better than that.
