Dante quiz postponed

Due to my desire to avoid phoning it in, the quiz on cantos XVIII and XIX is postponed until next Saturday. I am sorry for the delay.

Poland’s president dead

It’s strange, isn’t it, how one nationalist-inclined European leader after another has met with fatal accidents. First Haider, now Kaczynski:

Polish president Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria have been killed after their plane crashed on approach to Smolensk airport in western Russia.

Needless to say, David Cameron has absolutely nothing to worry about.
